about

Frontwoman Yea-Ming Chen has masterfully curated her self-proclaimed “pop record”, weaving melancholy narratives with catchy hooks in a sound that is more full on indie pop leaning than anything the Rumours have done before. The fuller-sounding production is heavily influenced by groups like Yo La Tengo, Camera Obscura and other early 90’s underground college radio favorites. “I Can’t Have It All” marks the band’s continued evolution past their early days as an outlet for Chen’s sparse and intimate songs.

Produced by Chen, the album was mostly recorded and sculpted in her home studio after basic tracks were recorded with Meric Long (The Dodos) at Tiny Telephone Studios and Mike Walti at Wyldwood Studios. As usual, the record is performed by Yea-Ming with the help of long-time Rumours collaborators Eóin Galvin on lead guitar, lap steel and backing vocals and Sonia Hayden on drums and percussion on several of the tracks. New Rumours members Jen Weisberg (Hits) and Luke Robbins (Latitude) also make their debut and appear on bass and drums throughout the record. “I Can’t Have It All” is a new album with a new line-up and a new perspective, signifying Yea-Ming and The Rumours’ entry into a new era.
