‘Aberdeen’ is a new experimental song cycle from the creative force behind the intricate pop band Lost Lander. In 2008, Matt Sheehy, a forester in addition to a songwriter, took a job in Kurt Cobain’s hometown. Living in a run-down, remote cabin, he soon became entangled with an eccentric local couple. Those experiences are now a one-man, musical storytelling performance that Sheehy describes “as a rock concert, meets The Moth, meets The Twilight Zone.” Told through song and spoken word and accompanied by live-action and animated projections by Stefan Nadelman, ‘Aberdeen’ is also Lost Lander’s third studio album, which features contributions from bandmate Sarah Fennell, Drew Shoals (Train), Brent Knopf (EL VY, Menomena), Dave Depper (Death Cab for Cutie), Scott Magee (Ural Thomas & the Pain), Dana Bouy (Akron/Family), and Justin Miller. It’s available on June 14 to all who attend these live performances or publicly on August 9.
