What people are saying about Lael Neale:
“Who knew the world was lacking a country-folk version of Broadcast until now?” - ★★★★ MOJO

“…a beautiful, otherworldly record.” - Aquarium Drunkard

“With her Omnichord, the singer/songwriter exposes the nerve endings of her songs.” ★★★★★ - Musikexpress

“This album reminds listeners that life is full of beauty not in spite of, but because of, the ordinary details of every day.” [8/10] - Loud & Quiet

“…an intimate, lo-fi set of songs that seem unearthed from the dusty vaults of time.” ★★★★ - The Forty Five

“The simplicity is part of what makes her record so beautiful; just her voice, her words, her electric guitar, and her omnichord are enough to put the listener in a trance.” - SPIN

“The result is the urgent melodies and unadorned instrumentals on Acquainted With Night, a collection of songs that’s disarmingly poetic in its simplicity.” - The AV Club

“Her lyrics are intuitive, meandering between memory and fantasy. As she ponders the rituals of the mundane – folding sheets, making toast, watching strangers in the street – her old-timey vocals and country-folk melodies make gorgeous, placid trails, gently crackling on the four-track tape.” - The Guardian

“With a celestial voice stripped of any artifice, Lael Neale skillfully blends romance and the banality of life with brilliant songs of drama and humor.” - Les Inrocks

“…There is a raw, unvarnished energy screaming throughout these 10 tunes.” [8/10], Northern Transmissions

“Lael Neale’s second album weaves intimacy with dreamy, Omnichordal magic.” - Secret Meeting

“A collection of intimate, powerful, and incredibly relatable songs, Acquainted with Night paints a portrait of solitude that resonates with the current state of the world.“ - Monster Children

Lael Nealeはヴァージニア州の田舎の農場で育ったが、ここ10年ちかくはロサンジェルスがホームであった。その間、ソングライティングを磨き、町中のヴェニューでプレイしたが、より良いレコーディングの方法は見つけられずにいた。「ドラム、ベース、ギター、ヴァイオリン、オルガンと楽器を重ねるにつれ、曲の活力が失われる」と彼女は感じていたのだ。2019年の初め、Laelはオムニコードを手に入れ、これが解決策となった。Laelは大量の曲のレコーディングを開始し、彼女を長年サポートしていたGuy BlakesleeはLaelのベッドルームにカセット・レコーダーを設置。4トラックでファースト・テイクのみを使用する形で曲を完成させていった。こうして最初にレコーディングされた曲がシングル「For No One For Now」であった。
