Always Repeating, Runnner's debut for Run For Cover Records, yearns for a sense of place. The project of the now LA-based songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Noah Weinman, Runnner's poignant reflections on the isolation and anxiety caused by a sense of rootlessness radiate with wit and charm. While writing the songs that now span Always Repeating, he floated between Providence, Los Angeles, and New York. "It's like I sing about these places yearning to be there, but also knowing full well that what I'm really missing is the people I met and the experiences I had," Weinman explains. "I get restless and frustrated in my present, and romanticize my past while pushing myself into some different chapter-one that usually starts with me in a dark place and some songs in my journal. These songs end up being the constant for me over the years." Always Repeating, self-produced and recorded wherever he called home at the time, documents this cycle of looking back and moving forward, of alienation changing to reconciliation.
