Flock Of Dimes
solo project of Wye Oak's Jenn Wasner
ethereal shoegaze folk
Flock Of Dimes
-from Baltimore, MD
-It’s been a year since Jenn Wasner left Baltimore, where she grew up, where she began playing music, where she started Wye Oak with Andy Stack, where she was a beloved and integral part of the community. “Baltimore, to me, is noise, and light, and excitement, and constant activity, and all the good and bad things that come along with that,” says Wasner.
In the debut Flock Of Dimes album, If You See Me, Say Yes, Wasner creates a kind of monument to those moments of being poised on the precipice, that feeling of diving into the new but at the same time looking back at what’s left behind. When standing on an edge like that, both sides — what came before, what’s ahead — are in such sharp relief, and this record comes out of that intensity.
Taryn Blake Miller
-from Winfield, KS
-Miller began writing the songs that would become Gumption at her studio space and apartment in Lawrence, KS after returning from touring in mid-2014. Recorded with producer Nicolas Vernhes (The War on Drugs, Deerhunter) at the Rare Book Room in Brooklyn, Your Friend fulfilled a penchant for drones, loops and found sounds. “I paid attention to textures,” Miller says. “I was trying to remove myself from an approach that I had followed before, but to be able to bring in that melodic element that is most inherent to me, and marry it with a more sonically meditative landscape.”
Gumption deals with growing pains that come from self-inducing this sense of quiet that can be uncomfortably revealing. “I was sitting with myself so much, I got to know myself in ways I liked and ways I didn’t like,” Miller admits. Gumption is a record of courage, as its title suggests - of having the willingness to make necessary shifts, and to have a sense of self-awareness that ultimately leads to growth.
