    Vagabon Featured in "Mirror Sound," New Book from Spencer Tweedy, Lawrence Azerrad, Daniel Topete, Due October 20

    Vagabon (aka Laetitia Tamko) is featured on the cover of and in the pages of Mirror Sound: A Look Into the People and Processes Behind Self-Recorded Music, a new book by musician and writer Spencer Tweedy, graphic designer Lawrence Azerrad, and photographer Daniel Topete, due October 20, 2020, from Prestel. The book is a visual portrait that delves into the people and processes behind self-recorded music, showcasing twenty-seven musicians, interviews, and studio visits and more than 150 images, as well as an introduction by Sleater-Kinney's Carrie Brownstein.

    Each chapter in the book takes on a specific aspect of self-recording through original interviews with musicians and all new photography. The book features intimate shots of artists recording in living rooms, backyards, and garages, including Vagabon at her home.

    "I had been thinking about musicians who self-record, and how their music often has this special sound that seems like it can only come from an artist working in their own space," Tweedy says: "I’d been self-recording since high school and I love the process so much, but I hadn’t seen many stories about it (even while 'making-of' things become more commonplace). So we started running around the country, interviewing and photographing artists who make records at home, on the road, in their bedrooms, in barns."

    Mountain Man—the trio of Amelia Meath, Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, and Molly Sarlé—has released Look at Me Don’t Look at Me, a live album recorded in November 2018 at Saint Mark’s Cathedral in Seattle. The live recording captures the band’s intimate touring shows in support of its acclaimed Nonesuch release, Magic Ship, and features tracks from that album, as well as songs from the trio’s 2010 debut, Made the Harbor; Molly Sarle's “Human”; covers of Fiona Apple's “Hot Knife” and Michael Hurley's "Blue Mountain"; and the group’s singularly quirky banter.
