Antlered Aunt Lord

Ostensibly Formerly Stunted (and On Fire)

Happy Happy Birthday To Me
LP $15.50

11/17/2015

HHBTM 170 LP 


ANTLERED AUNT LORD is entirely JESSE STINNARD, a guy who’s spent the past ten years in Athens, Georgia as a cherished eccentric in a town known for its cherished eccentricities. HHBTM is honored to bring Stinnard’s tuneful genius into the light with his first official release. Antlered Aunt Lord is everything today’s music is not—melodic, lyrically inventive, reticent, and moving. Songs so catchy they sound like they emerged fully-formed from the radio, with lyrics so mysterious they sound like they emerged from your dreams. This is the prophet sharing—the missing link between the Pixies and The Byrds if they’d been raised in the Appalachians. Little was known about Stinnard, an autodidact often seen around town in 24hr diners reading thousand page books, until he was begged into joining TUNABUNNY when their drummer quit days before the band’s first tour (Stinnard had approached the band after their third show and asked if he could record them). His shows around town are legendary for their passionate indifference. Stinnard’s been known to stand with his back to the audience screaming at unseen phantoms. Sometimes there’s a band, sometimes it’s just Stinnard with tape loops streaming around the space. Culled from a several-hundred song backlog, Ostensibly Formerly Stunted (And On Fire) is the sound of brain fever on fire. You think of R. Stevie Moore until you realize he never made a song as moving as ‘Throwback Bikes.’ You think of Robert Pollard until you realize Pollard hasn’t made a song as great as ‘Hi Beam Hi Priest (Blinker Fluid)’ since the last century. You hear the open-throated beautiful love of ‘Monopilot’ and think of early R.E.M. Then you remember that R.E.M. is dead. Antlered Aunt Lord is alive.
