Victoria’s Mike Edel has a new record in the pipe called India, Seattle. Today we get our first listen, “East Shore / West Shore.”
Edel made a music video for the song which you can check out on Exclaim right now.
He starts the clip with a voice-over, “I don’t think personal records are the most immediate. Maybe they’re too specific; and mine is specific. It’s specific to places and moments and snapshots in my mind and it’s specific to people. I made this record; I called it India, Seattle. I wrote it one Northwest Winter, recorded it the winter after, and many winters later, it will still be here reminding me. ”
The song should sound familiar to people who have followed Mike Edel for awhile. Folky, fiddle, female vocals showing up to compliment Mike’s style.
For the CFOX listener looking for something a little more chill.
“I’m on the east shore, you’re on the west. Can we meet in the middle? can we fix this?”
Mike Edle has a little tour of the west happening pretty soon. I don’t see a Vancouver show yet but you can see him in Victoria on April 11th at The Roxy Theatre. and somewhere out west:
