Find The Others – “Find The Others” – [Canada Council For The Arts]
“Find The Others”, the most current project by Canadian multi -artist Andy Sheppard, recording under the name Find The Others, is a beautifully produced, textured group of songs. Sounding like it swallowed a whole bunch of Mum and Sufjan Stevens, this collection feels like it belongs in the wintery north. It is music to be listened to on cold nights when everyone else in the house is asleep. It’s filled with acoustic guitar, obscure movie samples, guitar loops, vibraphone, whispering, slightly straining vocals, crackly background sounds, and the obligatory banjo plunking. Lyrics set a bittersweet yet hopeful and quiet mood.
