WATCH ‘THIS IS ANOTHER LIFE’ PROMO ANIMATED BY JESSE LORTZ HERE


Case Studies is the musical project of Jesse Lortz, a prolific Seattle based musician and today he announces his new album This Is Another Life which will be released on Sacred Bones June 11. His lyrics wax and wane with truth and bare tales from his life. Melodies surface as lines hummed in the in-between times. These easy melodies coat the heavy subject matter of suicide, heartbreak, grief and regret. As with his previous project, The Dutchess and the Duke, listen- ing to Case Studies feels like taking part in an exploration of sentimental landscapes. Listen to his first single “Driving East And Through Her.”

This Is Another Life is Lortz’s second full-length solo release on Sacred Bones. It is the follow-up album to 2011’s highly acclaimed The World is Just a Shape to Fill the Night. This is Another Life features guest vocals by Marissa Nadler on “Villain” and was produced and engineered by Greg Ashley of the band Gris Gris. Ashley also plays percussion, organ and adds additional vocals & guitar. Lortz is also helped out by Jon Parker (guitar / piano), Oscar Michel (bass), Joe Haener (per- cussion), Carey Lamprecht (violin) and Shawn Alpay (cello).
