Ruth Garbus- Kleinmeister Posted 09 Jul 2019

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 vocal range.

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."

Matt Bachmann- "To Be in Love" music video & tour dates Posted 08 Jul 2019

This morning, Week in Pop premiered Matt Bachmann's music video for "To Be in Love" from his 2018 album, Unconditional Love.

Week in Pop's Sjimon Gompers writes:

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).
