American Aquarium Returns With 'Lamentations'

American Aquarium - Lamentations

BJ Barham is back with his band American Aquarium.  The North Carolina native released a solo record called Rockingham a few years ago, returned with his band on Things Change and is now releasing the appropriately titled Lamentations into the world of lock downs and quarantines.

The album kicks off with the song 'Me + Mine (Lamentations).' It's a song about having empathy with people who we might not see eye to eye with on politcal issues. "We have way more in common as a socety than we do differences. I'm here just to try to embrace those similarities" Barham says.

Check out the video for 'Me + Mine (Lamentations)' here.

Lamentationsis available now on New West Records.

Eric Hodge hosts WUNC’s broadcast of Morning Edition, and files reports for the North Carolina news segments of the broadcast. He started at the station in 2004 doing fill-in work on weekends and All Things Considered.
