Carswell & Hope release new album Sign of the Times

Lawrence, KS five-piece Carswell & Hope have released of Sign of the Times, their 2nd full length studio album, on Tuesday August 30th, 2022.

The first post-pandemic offering from the group led by Irish songwriter and lead vocalist, Nick Carswell, the album features ten tracks that move from atmospheric landscapes through pulsing guitars and flavors of electronica, to the rich indie-rock that Carswell & Hope have steadily built a reputation for, over their ten years.

With studio work that originated back in the before times of 2019, the album was recorded in homes, garages and basements throughout 2020 and 2021. Finishing touches were laid down in the studio in January-March 2022 and the album was masterfully mixed by Joel Nanos at Element Recording Studios, Kansas City. This is the band’s first full length release in 8 years, and follows 2018’s Exit Plan EP and various single releases, as well as a variety of miscellany released during the pandemic.

Guest performers elevate and expand the C&H sound on Sign of the Times: Katlyn Conroy’s majestic vocals feature on several tracks, guitar solos and pedal steel provided by Lucas Parker and Mark Murtha, respectively, with Damon Parker on Hammond organ and Audrey Herren on cello. Album cover artwork is by Til Willis.
