The music is a patchwork amalgam of influences, including: twangy Southern rock (they’ve opened for the Drive-By Truckers), reverb-soaked psychedelia reminiscent of early My Morning Jacket or fellow Athens residents Phosphorescent, soaring guitar solos à la Neil Young and Crazy Horse, rhythmic jangle from that other Athens band, REM, multi-part vocal harmonies (which every band ought to have, dammit), and, weaving through it all, lyrical slide guitar. – Vox.com
Atlanta based Neighbor Lady is comprised of singer songwriter Emily Braden, guitarist Jack Blauvelt, bassist Merideth Hanscom, and drummer Andrew McFarland. With Braden’s strong, haunting vocals paired with dreamy Americana rock, they attracted attention in June 2016 with the release of the single “Consider Me Mean”. Neighbor Ladyâs momentum is indebted to their blend of powerful psychedelic indie-rock set to Bradenâs tender and soaring vocal melodies, creating a sensation both comforting, yet heartbreaking in the same moments. Neighbor Ladyâs self-recorded debut LP, âMaybe Laterâ was mixed by Andy LeMaster (Bright Eyes, Now Its Overhead) and mastered by Jason NeSmith (of Montreal, Casper and the Cookies) and is slated for release early 2018.
