Greetings From Scenic Gallup, NMby Andrew Weathers — April 01, 2016
It'll be a short update today, direct from scenic Gallup, New Mexico. We've been out in the Texas Panhandle hauling mulch, ripping flooring up, & attempting to navigate our way through the spring windy season. It's as if this batch of three new releases is calling us back to Oakland, we've got new ones from some of our favorite folks around the Bay Area.
First up is the sophomore release from glou glou, everyone's favorite minimal ambient glitch duo. fey flight founders expands on their previous work but brings out more acoustic elements. It's a cozy affair.
We're excited that Sebastopol via Oakland via New York finger-picker Dibson T. Hoffweiler is joining the FS fam with his contribution to our Editions Littlefield sub-label, Oakland to Sebastopol. Dibson's playing is intricate and delicate, at times reaching into the pastoral.
Finally, we've got the return of Oakland guitarist & pianist Jakob Peck. Emptiness Smiles finds Jakob in fine form, touching on myriad styles & techniques, spanning vast chasms but never feeling unfocused. This is not to be missed.
All of these are available from our bandcamp page as digital downloads or in limited cassette editions. Thanks for taking the time to check this out, apologies for the brevity. Remember that we are doing all of this together.
