On the heels of Midwife's 2020 sophomore album, "Forever," The Flenser is pleased to offer a new vinyl edition of her debut effort "Like Author, Like Daughter," remastered as a double LP in a gatefold jacket.
“Like Author, Like Daughter” is a portrait of Madeline Johnston's final year as a resident of Denver's famed D.I.Y venue Rhinoceropolis, which closed in a rash of politically motivated assaults on creative spaces across the United States. The album internalizes loss, addiction, abandonment and wrings them through distorted power chords, melancholy leads, and sheets of drone to create building, aching monuments to past-selves and lost relationships as positivist statements of resilience and self-love. It’s a record that is impossible to listen to without a lump in your throat.
All songs on "Like Author, Like Daughter" were written by Madeline Johnston between November, 2015 and January, 2017. It was performed and recorded by Madeline Johnston and Tucker Theodore in Denver at Rhinoceropolis and INAMBULANCE in Olympia, WA.
