We have been buzzing through lock down knowing that we had this to look forward too. MB has been a team fave ever since we first had the blessing of dialling in to The National. And their Folk/ Synch/ Indie perfection.
MBs first solo effort. You can sense a true confidence through the entire album A grounding, a direction and the most honest of conversations. Berninger has built a portfolio rooted in honesty and insight. And this debut solo doesn’t disappoint.
The album is produced by renowned Memphis multi-instrumentalist Booker T. Jones (of Booker T. & The MG's fame) and features contributions from a wide array of notable artists, including Matt Barrick (The Walkmen, Jonathan Fire*Eater), Andrew Bird, Mike Brewer, Hayden Desser, Scott Devendorf (The National), Gail Ann Dorsey (David Bowie, Lenny Kravitz), Booker T. Jones, Teddy Jones, Brent Knopf (EL VY, Menomena), Ben Lanz (The National, Beirut), Walter Martin (The Walkmen, Jonathan Fire*Eater), Sean O'Brien, Mickey Raphael (Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan), Kyle Resnick (The National, Beirut), Matt Sheehy (EL VY, Lost Lander) and Harrison Whitford (Phoebe Bridgers).
