About the album:
How Is It That I Should Look At The Stars is intended to be heard as a companion piece to Ignorance.
These are songs written at the same time that connect emotionally and deal with many of the same themes: disconnection and conflict, love, birds, and climate feelings.
It is an album of immense sensitivity, a recording of a band and a person daring to reach towards softness without apology.

How Is It That I Should Look At The Stars was recorded live off the floor at Toronto’s Canterbury Music Studios from March 10-12, 2020.
With Jean Martin co-producing, Lindeman sang and played piano live while the band improvised their accompaniment; Christine Bougie on guitar and lap steel, Karen Ng on saxophone and clarinet, Ben Whiteley on upright bass, Ryan Driver on piano, flute, and vocals, and Tania Gill on wurlitzer, rhodes, and pianet.
Recorded live in just three days, How Is It That I Should Look At The Stars is achingly intimate; full of breath, silence, and detail.
