The third full-length album from Boston-based trio Palehound, Black Friday is a finespun exploration of all the forms that love can take: love between friends, love for people no longer in your life, love in the face of self-hate, love that endures through major life changes or through many tiny catastrophes. With her thoughtful narrative voice, Palehound singer/songwriter Ellen Kempner imbues each song on the album with a radical sensitivity, an unchecked depth of feeling that ultimately sparks a greater open-heartedness within the listener. Co-produced by Kempner and Gabe Wax (Beirut, Soccer Mommy), Black Friday was recorded at Panoramic House in Stinson Beach, California throughout late 2018. The trio tracked most of the songs live, which introduced a new vitality into the bands elegantly detailed sound. With Black Friday building off the emotional complexity of its predecessor (2017’s A Place I’ll Always Go), Palehound hope that the album might help others to work through their own troubles in life and love of all kinds.
