EXPERIMENTAL LOCAL LABELS
Bas Relief is the Montreal-based project of David Mitchell from emo act Gulfer and Will Osiecki, featuring other voices of the Canadian indie music scene such as Valeda and Fog Lake. This project brings their emo sensibilities and songwriting to an electronic sound palette, combining with influences of bass music, IDM and ambient. This tape unfolds like a album, interweaving structured songs with short interludes and bringing guitar, piano, synths, and rhythmic static together with complex, mathy rhythms. David and Will are joined with the angelic female voices of Valeda and Naomi Soares for a set of melancholic, sappy-but-powerful songs that will throw you back to the emo days.
