    Tall Tales and the Silver Lining
    After the release of their 2011 album, Nice to Meet You Again, Southern California’s, Tall Tales and the Silver Lining decided to try a different approach to producing/distributing their songs for the follow-up project. Front man/songwriter, Trevor Beld-Jimenez, thought it would be an interesting notion to record sets of tracks throughout the year and release one single per season, beginning with summer. Each session was recorded at a different studio, in both Los Angeles and Ventura counties, and various artists were brought on to do the design for each cover, including Kyle Field, Jason Bays, and Seth Pettersen. The Seasonal Singles were initially released online as they were individually completed. The vinyl pressing of Tall Tales and the Silver Lining marks the birth of these twelve songs in a physical media format, and is the band’s first release with Rocketship Records.
    While performing extensively throughout California, the band has played shows with a myriad of notable acts, such as: Dawes, Kurt Vile, Deer Tick, Little Wings, Kimya Dawson, Blitzen Trapper, Neal Casal, Beachwood Sparks, Langhorne Slim, Mother Hips, Tom Brosseau, and many more. The group is influenced and motivated by a wide array of artists ranging from the likes of The Rolling Stones to Burt Bacharach, Neil Young and Crazy Horse to David Gates, and Minor Threat to Tom Petty. Beld-Jimenez states that the songs on this album find their messages stemming from “friendships, longing, love, an arch-nemesis, partying, depression, joy, babies, and family.” Tall Tales and the Silver Lining recently celebrated their fifth anniversary as a band, in one form or another, and this compilation is their sixth release.

    Some reviews of the Seasonal Singles:
    Folk Hive: “Check out the band’s catalog. Do it. For f#&@ing real, do it.”
    Unpiano: “Tall Tales and the Silver Lining deliver a summertime night drive’s selection of jangly, rambling, psych-tinged jams with the delivery that matches the best of Vetiver, Wilco, and the like.”
    Often and Loud: “A burst of brilliant instrumentation.”
    Santa Barbara Independent: “Conjures thoughts of ’50s rock-and-roll minimalism and dusty Mulholland Drive-style landscapes.”
    VC Reporter: “Tales and the Silver Lining’s Springles is enough to drive anyone mad for the want of more.”
