Sara Renberg

With a charming deadpan, Portland, Oregon artist Sara Renberg tells absurdist story songs. It's smart, understated indie pop with a sense of humor. Recorded by Ephriam Nagler at K Records' Dub Narcotic Studio.

On blue cassettes with hand-typed lables, insert, and digital download code. Cover art by Martha Grover (SomnambulistOne More for the People).

Released on Antiquated Future Records. Listen on Bandcamp.

"If released a decade and a half ago, indiepop bible Chickfactor would have been all over The Tall Calm...Portland-based Sara Renberg has an observational honesty and surrealness that reminds me of early Magnetic Fields and Stephen Malkmus. Songs aren’t mere moments, they’re epiphanies." - Chiara Grassia, BMA Magazine

Sara Renberg- Assimilation Blues

Deadpan and vulnerable, grounded and surreal, Sara Renberg's indie-pop songs are small worlds that envelop and surprise. Night Sands, her second full-length, is a record about the desire for and fear of intimacy; about being 32, gay, and single. The album's story-songs are funny and sad, grounded and surreal, nodding to artists like the Silver Jews, Liz Phair, Frankie Cosmos, and the Mountain Goats.

Cover art by Liana Jegers. Recorded by Adam Lee at Jackpot Studios. On smokey-tint cassettes. 

Released on Antiquated Future Records. Listen on Bandcamp.
