Monteagle Announces Debut Album 'Midnight Noon', Shares "East LA"
Fire Talk is excited to announce the debut album from Justin Giles WIlcox's Monteagle project out November 30th on the label. First single "East LA" is up now and streaming below or on any of your fave streaming hubs. Justin says of the track ""Something I’ve gotten into recently is the idea of fragmented memories. Remembering these beautiful moments but only extremely brief and blurry clips. This song is about that, and the way that we as people, essentially just live in a constant state of confusion due to selective recollection."
Midnight Noon is the debut album from Justin Giles Wilcox - best know as chief songwriter in Nassau & now defunct band Moonlight Bride. Monteagle, named for a mountain in Justin's home state and with a full band supporting has emerged as his main creative focus. The record is a collection of songs written about growing up in rural Tennessee, moving to New York City and looking back at the once discarded landscape with a deeper understanding and appreciation of rural America's hidden beauty. The album envelops a slow focus, working in honest observations and simple truths. It's an origin story sonically toying with Americana and Folk and placing it in a more urban, textural context. Written, recorded and produced by Justin Giles Wilcox and mastered by Doug Van Sloun (Bright Eyes, Songs: Ohia, M. Ward)
