Manchester Orchestra And The Front Bottoms Share Allentown Collaboration

Monday, 03 December 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

Manchester Orchestra and the Front Bottoms have teamed up for a collaborative track.

The contemplative Allentown is the result of a few sessions in Atlanta prior to the two indie bands' US tour together, which began last month and continues throughout December.

Speaking to Noisey, Manchester Orchestra’s Andy Hull revealed that he and All Get Out frontman Nate Hussey started working on the song as a sort of "writing experiment." He said:

"I sent him back the melody and we started crafting out this character with as few words as possible. When I sent it to the Front Bottoms, Brian wrote the cool narrator perspective as our chorus. The Front Bottoms crew came down to Atlanta and we co-produced the track and gave it some proper clothing."

Tue 04 Jun 2019

Having toured and collaborated with a diverse selection of musicians ranging from St. Vincent to Deerhunter, the Welsh musician and producer could loosely be described as trading in sprawling alt-folk, but that would only tell half the story. On her newest record, ‘Reward’, Le Bon creates a unique world indebted to new wave and jazz as much as it is to contemporary pop and folk acts—all with her own idiosyncratic twist.
