Matt Bachmann & his band performed a new, unreleased song called "Apple Pie" for a recent Mount Misery video session. "Apple Pie" was a live favorite at the Orindal Records Brooklyn showcase at back in June, & we're grateful that the song has been documented so beautifully! Check it out!
On August 30, Orindal Records will release Kleinmeister, the new album by Brattleboro, VT experimental pop/folk singer & songwriter Ruth Garbus. Kleinmeister is available for pre-order on vinyl, compact disc & digital formats HERE.
This morning, Various Small Flames premiered "Strash," the lead-off track from Kleinmeister, & its accompanying music video, directed by Joey Agresta.
Various Small Flames' Jon Doyle writes:
"Her fifth solo record, Kleinmeister
represents the perfection of Garbus’s esoteric art. Recorded with
Travis Laplante and with production and mixing by Ryan Power, Kleinmeister is
altogether more vivid than previous releases, and Garbus herself has
worked to develop her own sound too—spending two years under the
tutelage of opera singer Jim Anderson to fully realise her mezzo soprano
Far from dampening Ruth Garbus’s idiosyncratic vision, the studio
recording and professional training elevate it to a higher plane,
lending a sanctified edge to the singular tone. Poetic and often
bizarre, Kleinmeister is an album where light and dark are
marbled into intricate swirls, the lasting emotion not anything as
simple as happy or sad but rather a kind of extra-personal awe, that of
standing before the great overwhelming forces of the world and still
having to remember to breathe."
Known from work in Mega Bog and Big Eater — the one and only Matt
Bachmann delivers the world debut of the "To Be in Love" video courtesy
of Slopehouse Production's Adam Gundersheimer, Vanessa Haddad, Elena
Balara and Alex Hartley. Much like the oeuvre of Bachmann’s work; “To Be
in Love” strikes at those closely guarded places of the heart and
spirit where intimate expressions are expressed in earnest and sublime
manners. It’s a song that beautifully wraps together the entire range of
joy, melancholy, hopefulness, heart-break and that abandon of
helplessness that goes hand in hand with being in the throes of the
inertia of amour (that is something greater than you, the other person
and perhaps something greater than the bond itself).
