Ellen Kempner, the 21-year-old guitarist and songwriter behind Boston based project, Palehound. After the release of her Bent Nail EP and tour with Speedy Ortiz, Palehound will release debut full-length album Dry Food on August 14 via Exploding in Sound Records. Recorded with Gabe Wax (Wye Oak, Speedy Ortiz), the album was written at a time in Kempner’s life that was defined by instability and uncertainty.
Palehound’s Ellen Kempner played everything on Dry Food aside from the drum parts, and is joined live by drummer Jesse Weiss (Grass is Green) and bassist Nick Koechel. Today, she shares the lead track “Molly,” which you can listen to below.
