Baba's House organized a public concert by The Abramson Singers on May 18, 2013 at St. George Ukrainian Greek Orthodox Church in Flin Flon (Baba's Church). Vancouver singer-songwriter Leah Abramson and her band The Abramson Singers released their sophomore album, Late Riser on May 14th, 2013, and teamed up with Baba's House during their western Canadian tour. The concert presented a rare opportunity for local residents to view the interior of the church, whose 20 member congregation only attend services from May to October. Local band Five Easy Pieces opened the evening to a full house, who gave a standing ovation for the evening's performance.

Produced by Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, Brasstronaut), Late Riser finds the Abramson Singers with lush band arrangements, relatively upbeat tempos, retro organs and catchy melodies. Begun at the Banff Centre Indie Band Residency with Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire), Tony Berg (Jakob Dylan) and Shawn Everett (Weezer), the album explores new pop and indie rock sensibilities, but not without a firm grounding in folk songwriting.

Thematically Late Riser is a continuation on the subject matter of the Singers' previous self-titled album (2010), with songs of longing, loss and heartbreak alongside historically inspired songs about the Métis rebel Louis Riel (the French-English hybrid, “Marguerite,” and beautifully somber “Red River Valley”).

Along with her talented band (including members of Dan Mangan’s band, Petunia & The Vipers and Snowblink), and special guests (Sam Parton of The Be Good Tanyas, Old-time fiddler/singer-songwriter Rayna Gellert, Jesse Zubot, and Josh Grange of KD Lang’s band), The Abramson singers have put together an album of extraordinary beauty not soon to be forgotten.
