about

Following his departure from esteemed avant-rock collective Tarentel, William Trevor Montgomery donned the Lazarus moniker and began releasing his (sometimes uncomfortably) intimate bedroom recordings. His first album, last year's Songs For an Unborn Sun, was a slow-burning affair with the uncanny ability to make you feel simultaneously better and worse about your life. It was a cavernous sigh of distress and with Like Trees We Grow Up To Be Satellites (The Backwards America), Lazarus follows it with a much-anticipated breath of fresh air. Produced by Scott Solter (Tarentel, Court & Spark), Like Trees... is an epic folk-rock masterwork. Influences as disparate as Elvis Costello and Pink Floyd to Nirvana and Bright Eyes take on a whole new light in this grand, orchestral production, which is relentless in its beauty and power. Like fellow SF freak folks Devendra Banhart and Joanna Newsom, Lazarus clears a path between your head and your heart, and you can feel it widening with each listen.
