Montreal based multi-instrumentalist, writer, and visual artist Laurel Sprengelmeyer, aka Little Scream, has announced her signing with Merge Records and Dine Alone Records (Canada-only) for a new LP to be released later this year.
“Merge is a cultural monolith in my world, and I’m amped and honored to be working with them,” said Sprengelmeyer when asked about signing to Merge. “The record I just made is a crazy beast, and I can’t think of a better home for it.”
Little Scream’s debut album, “The Golden Record,” received an 8.1 rating on Pitchfork, which considered it “a stellar debut…[and] a perfectly mixed bag of graceful folk, coiled pop, and expansive art rock.”
NPR dubbed it “an absolutely captivating record,” including it on their Best Albums of 2011 list. The New York Times evoked its “hints of the divine,” naming her one of the best new acts to follow at SXSW.
