Slaughter Beach, Dog (Jake of Modern Baseball) are now streaming their new album “Birdie” in full via THE FADER. Speaking about the album, The FADER says, “Jake’s always been a thoughtful songwriter, and the neurotic folk of Birdie is a good reminder of his particular gifts. In a style that recalls long-winded storytellers like Conor Oberst and Stuart Murdoch, Jake sings of self-deprecating slackers and insecure daydreamers, of Goodwill parking lots and really shitty beer.”

Slaughter Beach, Dog’s new album Birdie, comes out October 27th on Lame-O Records. Pre-orders for Birdie are available now physically and digitally via Lame-O Records, in the UK/Europe via Big Scary Monsters, and in Australia via Cooking Vinyl.

Slaughter Beach, Dog have also announced a headlining tour this fall with support from Shannen Moser. A full list of dates can be found below, and tickets can be found here. Slaughter Beach, Dog also recently released the Motorcycle.jpg EP, which can be heard in full via Lame-O Records.

Slaughter Beach, Dog was started as a side project for Jake Ewald, one of Modern Baseball’s two singer/songwriters. Born out of a case of writers block, Jake used the project to experiment with writing from the point of view of fictional characters in the fictional town of Slaughter Beach to break off from the ultra-personal technique he’d developed in his main project. Since Modern Baseball announced their hiatus last year, Slaughter Beach, Dog has become Jake’s main vehicle, giving him a chance to go all in on developing as a songwriter. Combining writing styles and flowing free between truth and fiction, the album takes Jake’s signature mouth-full writing style, adds in some new influences from bands like Wilco, The Weakerthans, Jets To Brazil and Pedro The Lion, and comes out with something completely fresh.
