We have a couple more new tracks for you to take a listen to today. They are both pretty fantastic. Different moods to them, with one being more haunting and one with a bit more humour, but they are both contemplative and full of ambience. Check them out below.
Running Red Lights – Calls of Prudence
From Scarlett of Running Red Lights:
“Nostalgia is an addictive comfort to snuggle up to when the present day seems intolerably bleak.”
“Calls of Prudence” is a moodier, more sorrowful track in comparison to our previous, most recent releases. It was penned during a moment where I felt myself longing for the vibrancy of youth, the thrill of experiencing things for the first time.
One day, I was feeling particularly nostalgic and found myself reflecting on the days when I was young and could get blissfully drunk without having anyone or anything to answer to, without regard for the time that I was wasting. I curled up on my sofa with my notebook, my grief and my imagination, and I did what made sense – I began to write. I hope you can find some solace in “Calls of Prudence.”

Charlotte Cornfield – Andrew
From Matt of Auteur Research:
“You free yourself when you take away the script,” says Toronto songwriter Charlotte Cornfield. “That’s where this record came from, dismantling patterns and embracing the process.” Cornfield’s third full length, The Shape of Your Name, is set to arrive in Spring 2019 via Outside Music imprint Next Door Records. The album has a more honed studio sound than her scrappier 2016 release Future Snowbird, and for good reason: it was recorded in 5 different sessions over the course of 3 years. The songs are her strongest and most striking to date, and they’ve got that stuck-in-your-head-for-days quality that Cornfield is known for. The Shape of Your Name features a star-studded cast of collaborators including (but not limited to) Grammy-winning engineer Shawn Everett, Broken Social Scene members Brendan Canning, Kevin Drew and Charles Spearin, and Montreal songwriter Leif Vollebekk.
The first song to arrive from the collection is called “Andrew.” She said the song could be about a friend or a romantic partner, but that it’s primarily a “reminder to step back and look at the bigger picture instead of dwelling on the minutiae.”
