And what have we here now? C’est quoi Heartbeeps?
Meet our newest buddy from Poni Republic, we already introduced you to Bufi and Nuuro (again) this spring, y ahora, les presentamos a Heartbeeps a modo de premiere.
Heartbeeps is Craig Nunn from Leeds, constant traveler and creator of what he calls “instants songs”. That’s why this EP lasts less than 10 minutes, and each song no more than two. It’s amazing what one man can do with his memories, the way he manifests his deepest emotions; the glimpse of a young boy with a profound desire to make honest songs (mistakes included) and “a true record” in this world where hours are spent on postproduction.
The four songs were made during December 2007 and January of this year, no wonder why listening to Canton reminds me of Winter, dead leaves, green grass, and makes me want to put on my “Hat & Gloves & Scarf” and go out and walk through “Glacial Valleys” after taking an overnight train (“Kuszetka” in Polish) and seeing how the “Light Leaks” through a frozen window while singing it was where we wanted to be…
Just so you all know, everything was recorded on one take, all lyrics were improvised, and each track was written and recorded in less than an hour. Whoever’s fond of lo-fi and sweet-happy-melancholic songs that you can play over and over without getting tired of them, download Canton now!
