Joseph Shabason‘s Anne, released last November, was one of our 15 Album Picks of the year and it remains a beguiling, affecting and reflective listen from start to finish, encompassing jazz and ambient. So we’re very pleased to know that the talented composer and multi-instrumentalist is following it up with a five-track companion piece, The Anne EP. As with the album, the EP features contributions from Destroyer’s Dan Bejar and Thom Gill, amongst other musicians.
The Anne EP arrives on May 10th through Western Vinyl, and we can already hear the first gentle and beautiful single, ‘1517’. “1517 is the feeling of lying in a park and watching kids play on the first real day of spring”, described Shabason. “It’s knowing that life is gonna fuck you down, but consciously giving yourself permission to get lost in an afternoon”.
Let yourself immerse in the subtle beauty of this song.
