Alt-country impresario Simone Schmidt has been making a name for herself since the mid-2000s thanks to her work as frontwoman for One Hundred Dollars and the Highest Order, but now the Toronto-based singer-songwriter is ready to strike out on her own with the new solo project Fiver. Her debut LP, Lost the Plot, is streaming in full ahead of its September 10 release on Triple Crown Audio.

Taking its cues from Schmidt's previous roots-based releases, Lost the Plot offers listeners a much more dynamic listen over its nine tracks of introspective folk rock, evoking the atmospheric depth of early Cowboy Junkies and Cat Power ("Dayton," "Lonesome In This Grave"), as well as the eclectic symphonic leanings of fellow acoustic storyteller Bill Callahan (lead single "Undertaker").
