Here is a song entitled Bathurst that was previously included on the Beko August compilation, to be re-released on the upcoming Foxes in Fiction album Slow Evolution.
The lyrics are about finding happiness and clarity after a long period of emotional chaos. The name of the song comes from a street in Toronto I walking down when the melody came to me. The artwork above is made from two photos I overlayed that I took with my cellphone.
I hope you like it.

Foxes in Fiction
Three Songs for Ryan
Total Time: 9:27
Recorded between August 9th and 11th, 2010.
1. Rain Falls
3. Courtyard Summers
Aside from a few random things I haven't really produced many new recordings over the past few months. This is mostly due to the fact that the recording interface that I use broke down in April, and despite multiple attempts to have it repaired (and losing a lot of money in the process), it never worked out. During this time I recorded a lot of simple lo-fi acoustic based songs to my reel-to-reel tape machine that I got over my Christmas break and became almost completely knowledgeable of all it's properties and sound-manipulation possibilities.
I finally caved and spent an additional $300 on a new interface which finally came this week and once again opened up the world of digital recording to me, which is really fucking wonderful. I'm working on a something in between a full length and an EP called Slow Evolution which I'm trying to have done before August ends.
For now, here is a short three-song EP I recorded for my friend Ryan, which was kind of for the purpose of easing myself back into using computers to record (tape was also heavily employed on these songs). Hope you like it!
