Montreal’s Yves Jarvis unveils his third studio album, Sundry Rock Song Stock, with a November 13 vinyl release via Flemish Eye.
Following the release of Victim, For Props, and Semula, Jarvis returns today with another new single from the record. Described as “one consciousness,” watch the official In Every Mountain music video featuring Jarvis on drums.
As a pre-teen street corner busker, some of Jarvis‘ 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.”
