The brand new album from Tamara Lindeman's project The Weather Station, produced by Marcus Paquin (Arcade Fire producer). Singles from the album have been widely lauded from Pitchfork [Best New Track], NPR, Stereogum, The FADER, Guardian, NY Times and countless others.

According to the artist: "People write songs about love for a person, but I never heard a pop song about love for a bird. When I was touring a lot I got really into birds, because you can see them anywhere you happen to look; over a highway in Berlin, in the harbor in Gothernburg, pecking down the road in Perth. If you look at a bird long enough you can get pulled into its worldview; into how it sees the rooftops or dumpsters or trees along the road or parking lot. Seeing birds connects me to a deep softness inside of myself. Also, I love them.

Musically, I wanted to see if it was possible to make a song that was disco but also very organic and soft at the same time. Disco is music that always seems so invulnerable, and so I wanted to marry this very vulnerable song to that influence and see what happens."

Tamara Lindeman's songwriting has reached stunning new heights. With a full band supporting her, her new album draws upon the natural world to create unforgettable moments of calm and beauty.
-Sam Sodomsky, Pitchfork, 9/10 (Best New Music)
Tamara Lindeman's songwriting has reached stunning new heights. With a full band supporting her, her new album draws upon the natural world to create unforgettable moments of calm and beauty.... The silvery highs of Lindeman's voice still resemble Joni Mitchell, as do the cleverly captured details of Ignorance's lyrics....Musically and emotionally, there's so much going on that it's sometimes hard to keep up, but Ignorance is a major statement that never feels oversimplified. While she's growing so much with each album that it seems risky to call this Lindeman's best, it's safe to say this is another outstanding achievement from the Weather Station.
-Heather Phares, AllMusic.com, 4.5/5 stars (The AllMusic 2021 Year In Review - Best Of 2021)
...[Lindeman's] new album, Ignorance, solidifies the 36-year-old as one of the most audaciously inventive auteurs working in the broad singer-songwriter tradition. This 10-song collection broadens the Weather Station's sonic palette by foregrounding fluttering flutes, crisp orchestral sections, and, most importantly, a propulsive rhythm section ('wanting to dance and to sing in the rhythm of,' as Lindeman sings at one point). Alternating between glassy piano dance grooves and somber noir-folk explorations, the result is an album that sounds like a millennial Joni Mitchell fronting jazzy versions of LCD Soundsystem or the National, depending on the song.
-Jonathan Bernstein, Rolling Stone, 4/5 stars
