As I am writing this, Jess Bartlet aka Island Fox (aka the singer from TREASURESEASON) is painstakingly illustrating each of her just-to-be-released cassette tape, with her fox logo. Yes, it’s just a square and 3 triangles, but its alot more difficult than you think when you have me (Jed) blasting 90s dance hits in the office. Here are some photos with the song we were listening to while it happened. Y’know, so you can roleplay? She has one of the best voices around right now and you have probably heard her on other artist’s tracks adding her skills to dream-pop masterpieces left, right and centre. Her own release is a Double A-Side featuring “Tectonic” and “Things I’ve Seen”, both produced by Benjamin Abbott.
You may have noticed that I usually have a long rambling intro describing how I stumbled across a new band while climbing a tree in a rainforest, narrowly escaping the wrath of a pack of baboons when the band in question appeared like magic – as a hologram – at the top of the tallest tree around ; or perhaps I discovered a band while sinking to bottom of well and a found a small door and while crawling through, I find the skeleton of an ancestor, holding a mixtape with the most perfect band ever as track 1… None of these events happened with TREASURESEASON. I found them on Soundcloud and it was more exciting and magical than 1000 of my convoluted stories ever could be.
