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."

Jeff Tweedy - WARM (Album Review)
Thu 13 Dec 2018
Jeff Tweedy’s first collection of solo songs adds up to a gentile album of warm Americana that stumbles along in joyous reverie and elegant inebriation. It’s a fine turn from the Wilco frontman, whose band’s 25 year musical catalogue has sometimes fallen flat, but whose previous album—2016’s ‘Schmilco’—seemed to reinvigorate and freshen their sound. These good vibes have continued on 'Warm'.

Fri 14 Dec 2018
td#right {display:none !important;} Illustration: Sam Davies   The train is late. The trains are always late. Table the lost minutes. I absent-mindedly scroll Twitter in a glass shelter as the December cold gets its claws in. Before skipping over a review of the latest Jungle Book remake I’m stopped mid-feed by an autoplay video. Julia Roberts dances in a subway carriage for the New York Times. She grins, the plastic chairs smile back with yellow and orange teeth. The sound is off—my headphones are still playing Hop Along’s Not Abel. The weird thing is, that song won’t yield the floor. Instead it steps in to lead.
