Rathborne Announces Debut Lp 'Soft' Released September 10th 2013

New York City quartet, Rathborne, led by songwriter Luke Rathborne, has announced their debut album, SOFT, will be arriving in stores September 10 on Dilettante/True Believer.

Originally scheduled for release this month, the album was pushed to September with the pick up from True Believer and to coincide with a just announced fall tour supporting Travis, starting September 19 in Philadelphia and running through October 6 in San Diego (full dates below). This weekend in Brooklyn though, Rathborne will perform at the Knitting Factory,July 13 to celebrate the release of the second single off the record, "Wanna Be You" on 7" vinyl.
 
SOFT is a record that never stops moving, bounding from one jagged-edged song to the next, marrying the fast-and-loose ethos of Nobunny with the unhinged garage-pop of Ty Segall and the melodic ease of classic R.E.M. and Big Star.  Produced by Rathborne and Emery Dobyns (Antony & the Johnsons, Battles, Noah & the Whale), with mixing and co-production by Gus Oberg and The Strokes' Albert Hammond, Jr., the record nestles honey-sweet hooks inside tangles of guitar and Darren Will's percolating bass. 
 
Rathborne has already been featured as Vogue's "Artist of the Week" last month.

 
SOFT track listing:
01. Soft
02. What More
03. I'm So Tired
04. Eno
05. Low!
06. Little Moment
07. Last Forgiven

10. Why
11. So Long NYC
