"Angela Perley has been gigging nonstop with her band The Howlin' Moons since they released their debut album in 2014, laying down an interesting mix of folk, Americana, and ’60s-tinged psychedelic rock that floats seamlessly between Bob Dylan and Procol Harum, sometimes within the same song."— Chris Griffy, No Depression All of this has led up to Perley’s forthcoming LP, 4:30 (released Aug. 2, 2019), her first solo effort which she co-produced with longtime guitarist and collaborator, Chris Connor. Her third full-length record illustrates the songwriter’s knack for deft storytelling, warm vocal layers and disarming melodies that beget personal growth and mobility, surging from raw and far-sighted pathos. Perley's character-driven love songs on 4:30 are surreal in their ability to master genre-fluidity, with forthright storytelling, wry lyricism and a host of dreamy instrumentation. Colorful acoustic and electric pianos, rich and elegant strings (i.e. “Don’t Look Back Mary”), breezy organ and punctual pedal steel (i.e. “Snake Charmer”), along with soft and sweet folk and pop melodies reminiscent of Patsy Cline and Jenny Lewis (i.e. “Local Heroes” & “4:30”) pervade the record.
