"Liberation! is the title of Peter Matthew Bauer's debut solo album, a poignant and anthemic blend of soulful balladry, folk-tinged meditations, and full-bore rock & roll, crafted with an oblique nod towards the explosion of art, rock, and attitude that emerged from NYC in the '70s. Formerly a member of beloved NYC group The Walkmen, Bauer uses Liberation! as an opportunity to welcome the rest of the world into his personal history of a childhood spent living in ashrams, and a life shaped by the constant presence of religion and mythology amidst uncertainty. It's a bold, bracing collection of songs for the mind, body and spirit with the power to grab you and shake you out of your environment. Leveraging traces of Eastern arrangements in a solidly Western rock experience, Liberation! is the soundtrack of one man's journey inside himself, in preparation for the rest of the world to follow." Gatefold sleeve; numbered edition of 1500 with download card.
