Fallow Land announce Pinscher EP for June 30

When life strips away what we know and hold dear, we are left with a sense of emptiness. After a move to a new city, the death of a friend, the end of a band, and the close of a relationship, Whit Fineberg found himself standing on fallow land. He felt directionless, but also more inspired than he had been in years.

Fineberg began spending every free second recording song ideas in his Chicago apartment. He frequently returned home to Ann Arbor play music with friends and visit family. On one of those visits, he crossed paths with Evan Veasey, a musician he had heard about, but never played with. Fineberg was impressed with Veasey’s understanding of the guitar and ability to intuit his own musical inclinations.

Fineberg’s other band had shared a bill with Chris Bathgate years ago and seeing Bathgate’s keen understanding of each song he crafted changed the way Fineberg thought about his own art. It was an easy decision to bring Bathgate on to produce Pinscher. He spent several days listening to the songs and asking interesting, difficult, questions like “What does this song mean to the world?” and “What’s the most important part of this song?”.

After evaluating each track, Fallow Land recorded Pinscher at High Bias Studios with the help of audio engineer Chris Koltay. The EP was mixed by Matt Bayles and mastered by Ed Brooks (Cursive, Death Cab for Cutie).
