In an era in which the magnitude of cultural sickness is coming to light, Henry Jamison has had some time to reflect. On his second record, Gloria Duplex, the Vermont songwriter deconstructs ideas of masculinity from boyhood to adulthood and what it means to be a white, middle class male in America today. Recorded over a two-week period in New York City during January 2018, Gloria Duplex features an all-star cast including producer Thomas Bartlett (Sufjan Stevens, The National, St. Vincent) string arranger Rob Moose (Bon Iver, Arcade Fire, Phoebe Bridgers) and mixer Patrick Dillett (Rhye, David Byrne, Glen Hansard).
Gloria Duplex is the follow up to Henry's 2017 debut LP The Wilds which recently passed 90M streams and received widespread critical acclaim from The Guardian, Billboard, NPR, Consequence of Sound and more. On the Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman) produced album, which features strings from Rob Moose (who’s worked with Bon Iver and Phoebe Bridgers, among others), Henry explores themes of toxic masculinity (something he recently discussed with the New York Times), and boyhood and manhood in America, over a tuneful, stirring palette of folk music.
