Synopsis

Album Description
At L'Altra's captivating core are Lindsay Anderson and Joseph Costa. Binaries abound in supple, seductive unions: the Joe and Lindsay symbiosis, the digital & analog sway, the double helix of masculine and feminine back-and-forth (according to a number of Romance languages, L'Altra translates as "the feminine other"). Now Different Days, L'Altra's third full-length release, marks a band renaissance. Besides finding a new and welcome home with Chicago's Hefty Records, Lindsay and Joe have transformed what was once a revolving-door collective into a "duo and friends" by employing the production prowess of labelmate Joshua Eustis of Telefon Tel Aviv. Nate Walcott (Bright Eyes, Rilo Kiley) contributed horn arrangements, top avant-garde cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm laid down extraordinary strings, and pulseprogramming's Marc Heller is credited with additional programming. Lindsay has performed on tour with Will Oldham as a vocalist and keyboardist, and L'Altra has played with Tortoise, Smog, Rebecca Gates and Solex.

"weird how there are no other reviews for the album. i guess if i had to try to describe the sound of this record, i would liken it to a more feminine postal service with less computer generated sounds while still containing an electronic element that is prominent, with equally stellar production. One of the two members of Telefon Tel Aviv produced the album, and it sounds absolutely gorgeous. The same technique used in Telefon Tel Aviv's two albums sounds as if it too has been implemented in the recording process, which is definitely a good thing. Seems to sound best when listened to during a quiet time, for it is quite emotional, reflective, and melodic. recommended."
