studious patrons of a specific corner of the internet may already be familiar with sarah beth tomberlin’s stirring at weddings, released under her surname last year.  the substance and weight of that album appropriately drew the interest of saddle creek, who will reissue at weddings, containing three brand-new songs, on august 10th.

as an introduction (or re-introduction), tomberlin has shared a new music video for her standout cut “self-help,” its meditative, metallic timbre supplemented by hazy footage of tomberlin taking in an aquarium.  the recurring jellyfish feel like a subtle nod to references of electrocution and overall pain, concepts tomberlin sifts through with devastating turns of phrase.  watch the video below.
