“Though only 2:30 in length, this track has all the time to tell a complete story. Perfect for a rainy (and groovy) afternoon mood. Nathan reveals that it’s “based on some electric piano samples pitch-shifted over a bass riff and a beat (…) Fletcher Reed added a lot of nice sonic elements to this piece to bring it to a place that I’m really proud of.””
Double Single Release – Link to “Together”: www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKx1ekbbrKY
Today, lofi producers and multi-instrumentalists Fletcher Reed and Nathan Kawanishi release two singles – “Together” and “Queued Up” – from their forthcoming collaborative album, Recycled Tape (out June 17 via Nettwerk Records).
For the album, the two labelmates swapped unfinished material and added their signature stylings to complete the work into a cohesive blend of ten tracks. The end result is a dreamlike form of lofi instrumentals touched with notions of nostalgia at the forefront.
“This mixtape consists of a bunch of unreleased songs that Fletcher Reed and I had laying around,” reflects Nathan. “We sent them to each other to finish (or salvage), hence the name of the tape. There was really no formula, sometimes only minor tweaks were made and at other times the new track sounds entirely different from the old one.”
Fletcher Reed reflects, “the result is a project that hopefully feels very much like an organic mixtape instead of a linear album. Using our combined creative efforts, it became a fun way to re-invigorate some excitement in old songs and demos that were feeling incomplete. Both of us enjoyed the process so much that Vol. 2 is now nearing its completion.”
