Lætitia Tamko is professionally known as Vagabon. She is a solo artist, a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and according to Pitchfork, “an indie rock game-changer.”
Within the songs of Laetitia Tamko there are infinite worlds: emotional spaces that grow wider with time, songs within songs that reveal themselves on each listen. Tamko’s songs are embedded with her own story and personal history: growing up in Cameroon, her family’s move to New York and adjusting to culture shock.
Barely Dressed Records is over the moon to be re-releasing Vagabon's stunning album 'Infinite Worlds' in Australia and New Zealand - in partnership with San Francisco's Father/Daughter Records.
Infinite Worlds (2017)
Infinite Worlds was recorded at Salvation Recording Co. in New Paltz, NY with engineer and co-producer Chris Daly. Tamko and Daly worked closely and tirelessly in his upstate NY studio through the winter into the spring of 2016. The album’s title references a book of poetry by Dana Ward called The Crisis of Infinite Worlds, a book Tamko found particularly inspiring during her recording process.
The resulting collection of songs is a masterclass in soaring, emotive, DIY, lo-fi indie rock, and one that’s deeply personal - both due to her all encompassing performance and the intimate nature of her lyricism. It’s available now Australia via Barely Dressed Records (licensed from Father/Daughter Records (USA).
