Gumption is the first studio album by American indie / avant-pop artist Your Friend, released in October 2016 by Domino Records.

Your Friend is the music project of Kansas based Taryn Miller, having self released her debut EP Jeckyll/Hyde in 2013.

Gumption is expressionistic and also rich in many ways. Nothing here is wasted, as every lingering note or movement across the fretboard, adds something to the tapestry.

Miller asks for patience from listeners, but there are plenty of hidden treasures tucked in Gumption's sprawling soundscapes. While the album has the trappings of indie bedroom alternative with its buzzy synths and haunting vocals, the pain and power behind Miller's voice on cuts like "Desired Things" and "Gumption" is reminiscent of a world-weary folk or bluegrass singer. 

Miller knows her strengths and empowers herself as a musician. She writes with an eye toward her live performances, and Gumption is the perfect album to let wash over you in an intimate venue.

Closer "Who Will I Be In The Morning" is a mesmerising sunrise of a song, with Miller's lilting vocals echoed by a choir of robotic doubles. It, like much of Gumption, is about the emotion invoked.

Ultimately, for as talented of a musician as Miller is, her greatest feat on her first proper LP is creating a distinct feeling and sense of place that's possible only because every element here works in sync.

Check out the singles from the album: “Come Back From It”; “Gumption” and “Heathering”.

This limited edition LP includes a digital download of the album and is pressed on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl in the USA.
