Madeline Kenney‘s upcoming debut album, Night Night at the First Landing, was produced by Toro Y Moi’s Chaz Bear (formerly known as Chaz Bundick), but there’s nothing chillwave or dance-y about it. Instead Kenney is more in vein of Angel Olsen or Marika Hackman, with some dream-pop touches thrown in. The album is due out September 1 via Company Records (an offshoot of Carpark spearheaded by Bear).
