Yves Jarvis forthcoming release is inspired by folk, R&B, and maybe a tad of skronk? The Montreal artist has shared a new video for the song “In Every Mountain,” which Features Jarvis on the drums. Jarvis’ new album entitled Sundry Rock Song Stock, arrives tomorrow via Anti/Flemish Eye.
As a pre-teen street corner busker, some of Jarvis’s earliest performances took place outside. He returned to an open-air environment for Sundry Rock Song Stock’s creation, setting up a makeshift studio to lay down its foundation of guitar, Nord synth, and Rhodes electric piano. Recording on a reel-to-reel tape machine, he experimented with various off-kilter techniques including a softly tapped steel drum drenched in effects, or melodies played on a wine glass meant to mimic a flute.
“I want my recordings to be naturalist, so from that sense I am ideally making them outside,” says Jarvis. “More than a musician or a singer, I’m a producer, and any studio I’m in will become my bedroom. Creation is my life and I don’t compartmentalize it at all.”
