While having been focused on the songwriting of lead vocalist Matt Rogers and the relentless energy of drummer and co-founderEthanSoil, Fleece has always been about being a band. Fleece’s previous music had drawn from musicians no longer in the project, but it was the emergence of Megan Ennenberg(guitar/vocals) andJamesonDaniel(guitar)as members that completed the line up and contributed to the cohesive whole, the final resting place, the rebirth of Fleece.And it is from this new Fleece where their newest emerging musical work, the albumStunning andAtrocious, came to fruition. Said Matt, "I think we're finally Fleece. In the past, the process was more about bringing my own compositions to the band, but this album is a complete coming together of all of our brains. We played whatever we came up with, stream of consciousness style, and then restructured the songs until they felt right. It was a bit daunting to give up control at first, but the product and process of collaborating made Fleece more exciting for all of us. I definitely grew from it too. Song two (“LikeIt A Lot”) is about exactly this - letting the power go and feeling good."
When Hannah Judge sings "I went to bed and didn't get out for ten months," she isn't kidding.
Three days after releasing breakthrough track, "Car Crash in G Major, "Judge, who makes punchy, idiosyncratic bedroom pop under the moniker fanclubwallet, suffered a Crohn's disease flare up, sending the Ottawa-based artist into hospital and ultimately leaving her bedridden in her childhood home.
Yet far from letting her disability leave her inert, Judge met the moment by creating fanclubwallet's charming, delightfully DIY debut EP, Hurt is Boring.
Crafted between hospital visits by Judge and her producer/gradeschool bestie, Michael Watson, Hurt is Boring perfectly captures the innate balance of our stunted reality by tackling big feelings through the lens of emotional distance.
"It's about taking the good with the bad," Judge, whose illness is now in remission, explains. "You can't really appreciate one without the other."
