Album: Small Forward – Small Forward

Small Forward is the recording project of Rounak Maiti, Michael Stevenson, and Campbell Scott. The three met at college in Los Angeles, garnering attention through releasing demos online and playing shows within the DIY community across LA.

With their debut full-length record, the self-titled ‘Small Forward’ out May 20, 2020, the band puts together a collection of songs that mirror the diverse experiences and inspirations that have defined its songwriting. Richly layered and textured, the album strides through guitar strummed nostalgia and classic West Coast psychedelic pop, creating an emotionally stirring and genre-bending affair.

To mix the record, Michael, Rounak, and Campbell teamed up with veteran producer/engineer, Jarvis Taveniere, whose expertise brings depth and clarity to the band’s self-produced recordings. The resulting collection of songs are Small Forward’s strongest to date, vulnerable, textured and immersive— an album created by friends living across Mumbai and Los Angeles, yet bound together by the fabric of their music.

They released also previous music on Forget Artifacts and now they returned with a debut album. The album is full of heartful and beautiful melodies. A perfect for this summer season with a lot of lazy chill days. You can get this on cassette and just play it in your boombox while enjoying some summer shine. Just a perfect image.

You can find more music on Bandcamp or label Forged Artifacts.

Album: Julie Arsenault – The Creature That I Call Myself (Extended Edition)

For years Julie Arsenault has been one of Canada’s best-kept secrets. In 2014 the Toronto-based singer-songwriter self-released “The Creature That I Call Myself”, an album full of heart-wrenching tales of loss and suffering hidden under the catchiest of pop melodies. Released on Bandcamp only and without any fancy marketing campaigns, the album soon became a cult hit. Six years later, the Barcelona based label Son Canciones gives this hidden masterpiece a second life with a worldwide extended re-release, adding four powerful tracks to the original album.

“The Creature That I Call Myself” is the first album of “Whisper & Shimmer”, a new series of releases of albums that have been unjustly forgotten. Songs that were somehow left behind, but that are too powerful to disappear. We’ll give them a second life. We’ll blow off the dust, and try to get the world to see how bright these gems really are.

A true gem hidden in Canadian forests & rivers. Just stop for a while, put headphones on and just listen.

ALBUM SINGLE

Single: tara-bridget – Something Other

In Brooklyn, New York City is where I’ve been left alone in isolation since mid-March – away from my boyfriend, my friends, family, my studio.

In solitude you see yourself clearly and you start to see yourself – something other. My boyfriend and I worked on this song together from opposite ends of the world. Even when you’re left alone, you can do something beautiful and do it yourself.

A beautiful female lo-fi bedroom pop. So goood…

I love to share new, fresh music but also I love to go back and re-discover older stuff. No music is too old to be discovered and no one should think otherwise.

He creates music that blends his love of analog and electronic production. In the words of one fan “Clarence Kelly’s music represents at once both variety and familiarity, something that is right on the tip of your tongue but seems quite different at the same time.”.
