Exclusive song premiere: "Natural" by Preston Lovinggood

Preston Lovinggood
20 January 2014

We were bored. Lethargic. Dozing off with our feet up on the desk. Then this song came over the transom — and we were jumping around the office. When it was done, we had to listen again. And so we did.

Preston Lovinggood was the driving force behind Wild Sweet Orange, an indie-rock combo from Birmingham, Alabama, that splintered after one LP and a few EPs. Lovinggood released his debut solo work, Sun Songs earlier this year, a lo-fi affair produced by Taylor Hollingsworth (Dead Fingers, Conor Oberst and The Mystic Valley Band). “Natural” is from his upcoming release Shadow Songs, a decidedly more cinematic offering recorded in Birmingham and Los Angeles by producer Darrell Thorpe (Beck, Thom Yorke).

The new LP will be released Feb. 25 on Communicating Vessels. We’ll be listening!
