Florist - what do i do today ft. eskimeaux & yours are the only ears
120 plays

ohnoimlateforschool:

Band: Florist

Band location: Brooklyn, New York

Why We Like It: Florist is a band full of the few hints of light in situations of general sadness. They make you truly appreciate the little things. And 6 days of songs is just that. All the little things. “creatures of the sea” is about sea creatures and loneliness, “what do i do today” is simply about boredom, and “for my mom” is just a mother’s day song.

And it’s all appropriate and charming. These songs were part of a Song a Day for a Week project that Eskimeaux, Frankie Cosmos, Small Wonder, Florist, and Japanese Breakfast all participated in from May 5 to May 12. All known for their use of lo-fi acoustic bedroom music, it just feels right that these songs would focus on the little things.

For Florist we see such a natural progression of musicianship that makes me glad. I had begun listening to Florist in the fall when I found out about their We Have Been This Way Forever EP. It feels like Emily Sprague seems to understand themselves more than ever on the few days they took to put together these six new songs and I’m glad. With such a dedication to intimacy and a heartwarming attitude, Florist is just a on the peak of what potentially will be their best work yet.

some photos that i took on told slant/crying tour

hello I have two questions um 1) is there any chance you could put the chords for your songs up somewhere because i'd like to be able to play them for myself and 2) what microphones/ other stuff do you use for recording? yay thank you

if u have a song in mind i’ll gladly tell u the chords! i record with a bunch of different stuff. mainly though i have two different electro voice radio mics that i use pretty much on everything cuz they have the sound that i love, and sometimes i use a ribbon mic or an sm57. i also have a couple pre amps and record pretty much 50/50 on a 4 track tape recorder/digitally. new album is almost all tape though

Hey so you're really cool and your music is awesome! With that said are you going to tour anytime in the future?
