Foliage releases ‘Start a Fire’, feat. Andrew Younker (single)

by | Aug 13, 2021 | BandCamp, News, Singles

Foliage released a new jangle pop single Start a Fire that features Andrew Younker. The two previously released a split EP in 2018 called Split. Foliage, the project of Manuel Joseph Walker, first began in 2017 when Manuel was a teenager; he has since released five full-lengths, plus an album of demos, two EPs, fifteen singles, and has amassed several millions streams on Spotify.

Start A Fire mimics the conversation artists have when talking about recording. The desire to record a song and excitement about a track coming together is echoed in the song. “Hey, I really think I nailed down a crazy idea. Let’s record it. I wanna get recording.”

The instrumentation is a blend of clean electric guitar, gentle use of synth that adds color and depth, an unassuming bass line, bendy electric guitars picking a melody, and a drum loop that includes percussive hand drums.

Why, I’m telling you why
Maybe we can find
New musical roots

Play that again, I like your style
Burning up my heart

Foliage – Start a Fire, feat. Andrew Younker (BandCamp)

A resident of San Bernardino, California, Manuel is currently studying music at a college. We can imagine the yearning he has experienced to record music again. If this is true, it’s portrayed nicely in this single.

Jon Morrow releases sophomore single ‘I’m No One’

Jon Morrow releases sophomore single ‘I’m No One’

Jon Morrow is a songwriter from Hattiesburg, Mississippi, writing dreamy and personal songs. He uses a drum machine, which sounds like a beat from an old Casio (that’s a positive), a looping electric guitar running through a tremolo or vibey chorus pedal, and layers of vocals and harmonies with a high pass filter applied.

Puddlegum Studio and Plans for 2022

A 2021 developed, so did my vision. My goal was to move toward expanding the blog as a full-blown recording studio, both co-existing and supporting the other. This vision is taking shape, and the studio will be opening in the coming weeks.
