Album Notes
The Longwalls are serious about their science. “Careers” is their pulpy run at sci-fi triumph and failure—equal parts spaghetti western and 1950s futurism, pedal steel and 8-bit keyboard, failed missions in space, dystopian states of the body and mind, and phantom extraterrestrials that may or may not have seen. It’s cold and dangerous in space; Careers in Science is the cosmonaut’s companion in the dark void between the stars.

One of science fiction’s greatest attributes is its ability to present incredibly relatable, even classic themes through a modern prism, and it’s the perfect vehicle for The Longwalls this time around. Family failure and feelings of inadequacy are way more fun if they happen in space! Still rooted in their own brand of Americana and post-pop, The Longwalls stretch their legs in the studio, head in new textural directions, and collaborate in songwriting like never before.
