Omaha-based label Saddle Creek Records has just shared news of their most recent singing. Lately, the label has been keen to sign up talented unsigned new artists like Stef Chura and Tomberlin. And now we can add Black Belt Eagle Scout to that good company.
Black Belt Eagle Scout have just announced that their debut full length Mother Of My Children will be out September 14 through Saddle Creek. The project is spearheaded by musician Katherine Paul who has used this album to share her personal experience as a “radical indigenous queer feminist.” In a press release, she has also shared some words about the creation of the album:
“I wrote this album in the fall of 2016 after two pretty big losses in my life. My mentor, Geneviève Castrée, had just died from pancreatic cancer and the relationship I had with the first woman I loved had drastically lessened and changed. [these songs] are about grief and love for people, but also about being a native person in what is the United States today.”
Ahead of the album’s release, Black Belt Eagle Scout have also shared the album’s sprawling first single “Soft Stud.” It’s an ever-building track with a steady guitar melody that rolls headfirst into some incredible jam sections. You can check out that track down below along with the full album art and tracklist for Mother Of My Children.
