Watch Madeline Kenney Play “Tell You Everything” in the Park for “Neighborhoods”
Kenney performs the single from her newly released album Sucker’s Lunch in Oakland.
Last week, Oakland songwriter Madeline Kenney released her third LP, Sucker’s Lunch, which reinforced the twangy dream pop sound she’d been working toward on her first two full-lengths. Her capacity for piling on layers of muted instrumentation to match her hushed vocals arguably hits its peak on the mid-album “Tell You Everything,” a climatic moment of vulnerability on the lovelorn LP.
It’s this track that Kenney chose to play for us on her acoustic guitar in Oakland’s Joaquin Miller Park for “Neighborhoods,” strumming and singing over programmed drums and woodwind-like synths. Watch the performance below, and hear Sucker’s Lunch in full here (or, if you purchase it on Bandcamp today, 100 percent of proceeds will go to the artist and Carpark Records—additionally, proceeds from her merch will benefit a BIPOC doula training fund and Beirut relief orgs).
