The American Spirit Debut Album

The American Spirit Debut Album

The American Spirit are a three-piece making the kind of thoughtful folk rock that fans of My Morning Jacket or Father John Misty might recognize. If there’s one thing their debut album, the enigmatically titled Season of Violence or Mourning, Protest, & Birth of Bishop Killborne, can be called, it’s diverse. Often shifting from dreamy, lackadaisical, free-roaming jaunts to fuzz-laden indie anthems to good ole’ folk ballads and everything in between.

The record is based on the processing of the recent suicides of two of singer/guitarist Gabriel Strycharz’s close friends. Themes of mourning and protest surfaced while trying to understand where the victims were and how it affected those who knew them. An emphasis on atmosphere and ambience makes it a spatially resonant album, definitely recommended for a listen with the biggest headphones you can find.

Download Wait For The Night below. The album is available February 24th via independent release.
