North Americans - Going Steady
***Third Man Records proudly reissues Northern Americans album Going Steady. Originally released in 2018 in extremely limited numbers, Going Steady features North American's main man Patrick McDermott playing acoustic guitar and moog alongside contributions from Meg Duffy, Juliana Barwick, Hayden Pedigo, Dylan Baldy, and Joel Williams creating a gorgeous dusky instrumental album of cosmic pastoral sounds. Each song on Going Steady glimmers and shines, and taken in it's entirety is like a beautiful sunset transforming into a star-filled evening. This album has soundtracked countless late-night conversations on my front porch in Tennessee, as well as the next morning's coffee and sunrise. It is the American Songbook read, ingested and transformed into something completely new for our post-everything world. Featuring ground-breaking artwork from underground artist, Brian Blomerth, Going Steady is an album to stimulate all of your senses, a gorgeous and centering listen and a much-needed album in any collection of freak-folk or acoustic American albums.
