Austin, TX heart-on-sleeve indie/folk-rock band Under The Rug took leave from their mobile home and traveled across the U.S. to Los Angeles to record their third full-length album, Homesick For Another World, produced by Oak House Recording owner and David Fridmann understudy David Peters (Blake Mills, Empress Of). 
 Western Canadian Music Awards’ “Breakout Artist of the Year” Ariel Posen – described by Rolling Stone as, “A modern-day guitar hero” – contributes slide guitar to the record.

Under the Rug has been featured at American Songwriter, Rolling Stone India, Atwood Magazine, Americana UK, and even received a co-sign from The Mountain Goats’ John Darnielle. 
 Lead singer, songwriter, and guitarist Casey Dayan, guitarist Sean Campbell, and drummer Brendan McQueeney have taken a fanatical and steadfast approach to DIY marketing, which has helped grow the band’s audience exponentially since their 2019 debut album Pale King. 
 Homesick For Another World’s Beatles-esque production flourishes underscore Dayan’s unique songwriting perspective.

“Lonesome & Mad” underlines these elements with its agile hooks and crackling slide guitar from Ariel Posen, offering warm melodies and a wordless chorus in the outro. 
 Packing a decade’s worth of friendship and songwriting in a beat-up van, Under the Rug’s on-the-go work ethic has yielded an expansive record, written on the road to Los Angeles, brimming with hope and hard-won truths from the heart.
