Singer/songwriter/guitarist Jess Abbott first began releasing solo material as Tancred in 2011 while a member of the Minneapolis indie rock group Now, Now. Seven years later, her fourth Tancred LP, Nightstand, is her first after parting ways with the band and relocating back to her home state of Maine. While the project began with a collection of relatively restrained, introspective home recordings, she quickly became associated with a more aggressive, '90s-inspired alt-rock sound, if one tempered by bright hooks and melodicism.
