Post rock/ambient outfit Take Care are back with a new self-titled record, due out December 14th on Heirship Records. The double LP will be the final release on the Heirship label, and coincide with the Heirship Records Farewell Fest on December 15th at Canopy Club.
Read the announcement from labelmaster Isaac Arms:
Take Care began recording Take Care around the time I started this label. It’s very poetic that the double-album will be Heirship’s final release. This is the culmination of almost a decade of work from the four members (Luke Bergkoetter, drums; Nick Foreman, keys and vocals; Kyle Scott, guitar and bass; Mark Wyman, guitar and vocals) and as much time for me being a huge fan and then becoming good friends with these men. Now their live shows are few and far between, and the album’s sound inspired them to bring Brandon Beachum (of labelmates Marathon) on to play bass with them live.
The pre-order is live and I cannot recommend anything more than this collection of pieces. Each song has changes within it, key and tempo, feeling and meaning, and the four sides of the 2xLP take you on an absolutely crushing and beautiful journey. I am so honored to have been a part of this project and to help Take Care put this out into the world. This might be the last thing I write for this website, so I wanted it to be less of a press release and more of a journal entry, because on a personal note, working with these artists and this music literally changes who I am as a person, and through my mistakes and their generosity, I’ve grown and learned.
This music is something truly special, and is everything about what this label was supposed to be—a piece of Urbana-Champaign history, a snapshot of the music scene, something huge and emotional and brilliant and gorgeous and available on vinyl but also streaming in full for free so that it can exist out in the world because it deserves to be heard. Please buy it if you can. Please Share it with everyone you think will care, because I believe they will be better for it. I know I am.
