I am proud to unveil Adam Stafford’s “Imaginary Walls Collapse” LP, being co-released in July with the absolutely fantastic Song, By Toad records of Scotland. Adam is a Glaswegian experimental-pop weirdo who uses loops, beatboxing and general weirdness to make his dirging, yet sublimely catchy, well-crafted songs. The LP will be limited to 500 copies.
The first single is “Please”. Listen to it and read about it below.
Standard Fare have sadly parted ways, but they left us with one final (amazing) single, which I couldn’t be prouder to present to you now!
Rumours is a heartbreaking indiepop jam, with an equally great b-side in “Out Of Sight”.
The new LP “Food. Shelter. Water” by OK Vancouver OK is now streaming in its entirety on Exclaim.ca! The vinyl is limited to /500 copies only and it’ll be out on Record Store Day (April 20th). Exclaim has interviewed bandleader Jeff Johnson about the record, which was produced by Eli Moore of K Records band Lake.
Exclaim says: “the record benefits from rich sonics, adding layers of guitar interplay, synth and general aural warmth that sets it apart from Johnson’s previous lo-fi endeavours.”
I am really excited about this release! Enjoy the music and see OK Vancouver OK come to your ok city ok this year on their massive world tour!
“‘What’s My Memory For?” is built on yelping vocals, a driving drum stomp and thick layers of guitar and synth atmosphere. The result sounds way more like a sprawling, epic anthem than a two-minute pop song.” – Exclaim.ca
“What’s My Memory For?” is from their forthcoming LP “Food. Shelter. Water.”, to be released on April 22nd 2013
