Indie-songwriter Lucas Kurmis has a way with words.
Titled, Another Time/Life/Universe, his latest album is being unveiled track by track as part of a visual album release, allowing the Minneapolis, Minnesota artist’s eclectic blend of plaintive, guitar-driven folk and narrative fiction/non-fiction to unfold one curious chapter at a time.
New Noise Magazine is proud to premiere the video for Kurmis’ latest track, “Record Store,” below:
Another Time/Life/Universe focuses on the negative spaces between the realms of fiction and nonfiction, and the seemingly inconsequential missed connections of human interactions.
On the track’s Valentine’s Day release, Kurmis states:
“I thought that there was something fun about releasing it on Valentine’s Day, as the song does explore a relationship of sorts. It’s a more spoken word story put to music about navigating a disorienting relationship with a friend or maybe more. It’s maybe a bit comparable to Florist or maybe even Internet Dating somewhat, but it’s sort of in its own realm.”
