Foxes in Fiction

 

orchidtapes:

We just added some new royal blue logo shirts to our store in both soft pink and soft cream, these are like 1000x softer than the last shirts we sold and I’m so so happy with how they turned out. Angeltown II posters and the 2nd pressing of the Foxes in Fiction tapes are up now too :)

sawya asked: Hi Warren, I got a question regarding your gear. I understand that you use a loop pedal on a lot of tracks. I wonder if you use the main output of your mixer as the input on the pedal to be able to loop from any source or if you change the input of the looper every time you want to add a different layer. Thanks for your inspiring music!

I don’t really record with my looping pedal at all, I just multitrack everything in Ableton and only really do loop stuff live.

inhalingsoundwaves asked: What different mic setups have you come to prefer for acoustic guitar, vocals, and guitar amps?

I’ve been using a CAD M9 (and very infrequently, a AKG C 1000 S) for absolutely everything for over five years now, I’m pretty sure it’s a fairly entry-level condenser mic but I’ve gotten to know how to use it pretty well in that time.

Foxes in Fiction: "Ontario Gothic"

foxesinfiction:

Here’s the title track from ‘Ontario Gothic’, which you can listen to over at Pitchfork.

Musicially, “Ontario Gothic” begins where the previous song on the album, “Shadow’s Song” lets off. The the same melody - made from cutting up & copying and pasting singular guitar notes forms the melodic basis for the majority former. The instrumental elements of the middle / transition section make up the Foxes in Fiction song “Breathing In” found on the first Angeltown compilation. And like “Shadow’s Song” it features violin arrangements by Owen Pallett.

Lyrically, “Ontario Gothic” is written about a close friend name Cait who died in 2010 and to whom the album is dedicated. Cait was one of the closest friends that I had for many years when I was a bit younger. She and I became really close after I had moved back to my hometown in the suburbs of Toronto, away from a farm in rural Ontario that my family lived on from 2001 until 2004. I was coming away from what was the worst and most emotionally tumultuous period of my life at that point and I carried a lot of fucked up anxiety and deep sadness about my life and myself as a person. But more than anything else, getting to know, open up to and spend time with Cait during those first years helped open me up to kinds of happiness and a love for life that I didn’t think was within the realm of possibility at that point in my life.

She was one of the most remarkable, open and truly good people I’ve ever known, really. The song “Flashing Lights Have Ended Now” was also written about her just a point where we’re drifting apart; a year later she was gone. I wrote this song to crystallize the better parts of our friendship and to remember the healing effect that she had on me as a person which without I would not be the same person or have the same acceptance for life that I do now. I miss her enormously and I feel her influence and presence constantly.

Ontario Gothic comes out on September 23rd on Orchid Tapes.
