PATCHING THINGS UP: LASKA Set to Release Sophomore Record
‘Endless Patcher’ tells the tale of the sister musical trio learning to thrive during turbulent periods of change
Three Wisconsin native sisters are set to release their sophomore effort, an ode to healing and thriving in turbulent times.
LASKA, the core of which consists of sister trio Mookie, Bex, and Hannah Morton, are set to release their sophomore full-length album, Endless Patcher, on June 3. The lead single from the record, “Funhouse,” is available now, with an accompanying music video. The now Minneapolis-based trio live in very different places, with Mookie and Bex living in Los Angeles, while Hannah makes her home in Minneapolis.
“My year has been, in theme with this album, taking it easy, healing old wounds, and trying to get to the bottom of how to get the most out of life,” Mookie said.
The 10-song record addresses the density of their lived experience, and it feels very American – in the best sense of the term. If a record can be both mystical and grounded in the everyday, Endless Patcher fits the bill.
It’s been a journey of discovery since they began playing Monday night shows in Minneapolis, and Endless Patcher is the culmination of their work ethic and finely honed aesthetic. The aesthetic was clearly defined on their first album, 2017’s Ceiling Zero, and since then they’ve been able to improve and refine their songwriting and sonic quality.
“I feel like the driving force behind this is the desire to connect with people, and the hope to create beautiful things that will encourage people to feel things with me. When my sisters moved across the country, I feel like it kind of gave us each the space to not only step into our own solo musical ventures, but also to grow into ourselves as people, motivators, creators, and business partners.”
While the sonic trio behind LASKA may be far apart geographically, the music on their upcoming album showcases their constantly close connection, manifesting in an album primed to impress fans of their brand of indie-folk music.
Endless Patcher by LASKA is due out on June 3. “Funhouse” is available now on all major streaming services.
