We are delighted to add Canadian artist Astral Swans to our roster! We have been fans since his wonderful debut All My Favourite Singers Are Willie Nelson came out on Dan Mangan’s Madic Records. Matthew Swann (the artist behind Astral Swans) is the nicest guy you’ll ever meet too. His new album Strange Prison will be released on May 18, 2018 through Tiny Room Records (in collaboration with Saved By Vinyl in Canada and Moorworks in Japan). The album is produced by Preoccupations’ Scott Munro, Dan Mangan and Paul Chirka and is Matthew’s most sonically exploratory and emotionally resonant release to date.
First single What Are You Gonna Do With Yourself is out now, and there’s a lovely psychedelic cat video for it. The song is a soothing yet tongue-in-cheek meditation on aging artists’ fears of being left behind. Watch it here:
