Young Ones Records

Louisville, KY’s Bendigo Fletcher unveil their second full-length album, Two Things At Once, on March 22, 2024 via Elektra.  Opening track “Upcountry Lemonade” ultimately sets the tone for "Two Things At Once. Breezy strumming washes over a steady beat punctuated by the wail of slide guitar as the lyrics paint an idyllic picture of picking up, leaving your old life behind, and embracing the future with eyes wide and hearts open. Against this sunny soundscape, lead vocalist/guitarist/banjo player Ryan Anderson promises, “I’m gone first thing tomorrow. Lips on the upcountry lemonade.”   The frontman fittingly dubbed it, “a self-liberation adventure about riding away on a motorcycle I’ll never have.”  Two Things At Once pulls together threads of folk, psychedelia, indie, alt-country, and rock into a pastiche of vibrant characters, vivid memories, and vital moments. It’s a recipe for 11 intoxicating and irresistible anthems earmarked by American Songbook-worthy storytelling and elevated songcraft. For the album, they notably reteamed with producer Ken Coomer [a founding member of Wilco and Uncle Tupelo], recording at Cartoon Moon Recording in Nashville and at Southern Grooves in Memphis joined by GRAMMY® Award-winning engineer Matt Ross-Spang [Jason Isbell, John Prine, Margo Price].  Anderson sums up the spirit of Two Things At Once, “If I worry too much about the fact that anything can happen at any time, the pressure can be crippling—so it helps to try to sit and bear witness to all the examples of love and joy around me. Even in times of great pain there’s also some peace that needs to be found. There’s always more than meets the eye.”
