Toronto’s Jane’s Party have shared a free stream of their track ‘Acknowledgements’.
The band wanted to push the boundaries of what they have done in the past and explore new aspects of their musical relationship.
The biggest change is that there are no drums on the song.
“We knew that such a fundamental decision would force us all to get out of our old habits and comfort zones – “shuffle the deck” in a way. With David Spekter’s work on the vocal harmony arrangement, ‘Acknowledgements’ ebbs and flows beautifully, with the lyrics always at the forefront,” the band said in an e-mail.
“Coming up in music as jazz students, we’ve always played and listened to instrumental music yet have somehow never made any of our own. The concept was a 60’s style approach to recording ‘Surfing on a Sinewave’ – a one-day studio session with all four of us jamming together in a single room,” the band said. “Who better to inspire us and guide us through the process than Leland Whitty of Badbadnotgood? His production work in the studio and throughout the mixing process made for an incredible learning experience.”
Jane’s Party also offered a free stream of ‘Surfing on a Sinewave’;
