Respect for tradition with the sophistication to shake it off. Deadpan expression of a staunchly honest vision. Altameda (AL-tah-MEE-da) have evolved into a band with a bold, and unrelenting sound. It’s the culmination of experience, both musical and rawly human, that makes Altameda the band they are.The band’s forthcoming release is sure to be their strongest to date. Recorded in Toronto, ON by Thomas D’Arcy (Neko Case, The Sheepdogs, Yukon Blonde) and mixed in Portland, OR by Tucker Martine (My Morning Jacket, Whitney, REM), the newest offering shows immense growth, both musically and personally. Grappling with family tragedy, love lost, and the countless miles in between, the record is both lyrically nuanced and compositionally lush. It is clear that the band have a bright future ahead.
