Dean Wareham Emancipated Hearts EP on Limited Edition 10" Vinyl + Download
Emancipated Hearts is the debut solo release from former Galaxie 500 and Luna frontman Dean Wareham. Produced by Papercuts’ Jason Quever, the 6-song mini album comes across like a bucolic, folk-rock take on Galaxie 500, with five original songs based around literary or film references and with a very politicized feel ("The Deadliest Day Since The Invasion Began" and "The Ticking Is The Bomb"), plus a cover of The Incredible String Band’s "Air."
In addition to Wareham and Quever, the release features appearances by Britta Phillips, Anthony LaMarca and Gillian Rivers on violin. Emancipated Hearts is a beautiful, understated collection presented here on limited edition 10" vinyl with accompanying download by Double Feature Records.
"It’s stunning how much life( and death) Wareham spreads over these tracks, and makes these tiny whispers of songs feel like the biggest secret anyone’s ever told you.” – Pitchfork
“Dean Wareham’s first solo album is characteristically refined and intimate, sung in a hymnlike mumble and steeped in the Velvet Underground, classical string drones, synth-pop and country music.” – Rolling Stone
