Brazos’ Martin Crane is set to release his first solo effort, Physical Therapy on November 20th via
INSCAPE. Though Physical Therapy is the first under his own name, Martin has been in music for years as the main force behind Brazos (Dead Oceans) The album’s title track is available to stream.
Physical Therapy defines a new style for Martin, uniting his distinctive lyrical voice with the push and pull of a live rock band and the sonic textures of top 40 pop. Martin recorded the album twice – once as a live-performance recording with fellow collaborators Ian Chang (Son Lux, Matthew Dear, Landlady) and Spencer Zahn (Twin Shadow, Empress Of) and once as a solo record using Ableton. Martin mixed the songs himself, leaving the last step to veteran mastering engineer Chris Gehringer (Drake, Katy Perry, Jay Z, Rihanna).
