Fools - Fools' Harp Vol.1 (LP) (Music From Memory)

Availability: In stock

Gentle new music on MFM from Grizzly Bear (the U.S band) founder member, Christopher Bear. Chilled out, soothing and with a gentle tweeness - some of which reminds of all that lovely pillowy electronica from the early 2000s (City Centre Offices, Expanding, Morr, Mille Plateaux, Leaf etc etc). Cool stuff to drift off to. TIP!

The label Say:

Music From Memory are delighted to present Fools’ debut album ‘Fools’ Harp Vol. I’ and the first
solo release of American musician Christopher Bear. Drummer and multi-instrumentalist of cult
Indie band ’Grizzly Bear’, ‘Fools’ is a pseudonym that Christopher has been using while working
on his independent music making for some time now.

Often finding the structure and form of a more traditional ‘song’ and the concept of an album too
restrictive, Christopher finally set aside a six week period in the summer of 2019 to explore the
possibilities of jamming alone and seeing where it took him: recording each instrument himself
and then responding through improvisation to his own recordings, Whilst doing most of the
recording in a digital set up, he also set out to capture some of the same mental and sonic
space from his time recording on 4-track.

The results of these Fools’ sessions, he explains, feel “almost more like a mixtape than an
‘album’ per se” to him. With a sense of the dichotomy between nostalgia and the future, ‘Fools’
Harp Vol. I’ seeks to transport the listener to a world both familiar and comforting, exploring
something undiscovered while maintaining a deep sense of openness and curiosity.
