The brand spanking new Jennifer O'Connor LP, Here With Me, is here. It was produced, recorded and mixed by John Agnello (Sonic Youth, The Hold Steady, Dinosaur Jr.) in 12 very productive days at Headgear in Brooklyn in March 2008. Basic tracks - including vocals - were recorded live. It will be released on Matador Records on August 19, 2008, and it will bring the Brooklyn musician to the mass audience she so completely and utterly deserves.
If that isn't enough Jennifer, you can also catch her track "Hopeful" in the new film The Strangers. That's the one with the really creepy commercials about the people wearing freaky masks that Liv Tyler has to fight off. Scary.
