RECENT press for “DEATH IN A FIELD” AND “the guesthouse”
“An enigmatic cross between Belle and Sebastian, Wilco, and Ben Folds…a master of his craft…as tasteful as indie rock gets…pure, unmitigated emotion mixed with a love and a yearning.”
“…a gorgeously-arranged acoustic ballad…[with a] narrator who struggles to change.”
THE VINYL DISTRICT
“…his haunting falsetto careen[s] through a psychedelic tangle of rootsy instruments…a lovely intro into the mystical world of Lear’s new record.”
THE MUSIC NINJA
“A charming ride throughout…a tasteful blend of organic percussion, playful guitar work, and a splash of saxophone….It’s a combination that left us both wanting to throw this into our regular rotation and anxiously looking forward to the full album.”
“Radically radiant. Thin Lear‘s 70’s- influenced rock is something that we clamor for. It sizzles with dexterity and palpable excitement.“
ALSO FEATURED on…
Here at Thin Lear HQ (i.e. my Astoria apartment, which is not nearly as yellow as it is in this photo), we have some very exciting news that we’re dying to tell you about. No, we didn’t get a dog, as that’s strictly against the rules of the building. It’s better than a dog. Possibly even better than a cat.
We’ll hopefully be able to let you know very soon, but, in the meantime, why not enjoy us on Spotify? It doesn’t cost anything. Unless you have Spotify Premium, in which case, it does.

This Friday! @knittingfactorybk ! The Thinnest of Lears! Come out and see the event that everyone is talking about in hushed tones as "something to do on a Friday night." @raisedbytigersband will kick things off, with @swimmingbellmusic to follow. Spectacular people, they are. And then Thin Lear will take the stage to thunderous applause. Or maybe that's just what I was envisioning. Tickets/details in bio.
And thank you, @bourbonandbranch , @xgregmendezx and @joshlevinsky for a lovely show last week in Philly. Some serious talent on that stage, and it was an honor to share the bill with you.

Look at how excited I am! @hilocatskill and @racebrooklodge gave us a grand start to this East Coast run. For everyone who came out, it was truly a pleasure playing for you all; we met some lovely people, including one particularly enthusiastic, music-loving baby.
We'll see you tonight, people of Burlington, at @radiobean , and Thursday night in Somerville at the @oncesomerville lounge w/ @helenorhelenor and @curtiskillian . Please bring water for me, as I'll be jogging to each venue.
