Dream folk from Brooklyn: Florist plays Silent Barn on 02.20

Dream folk from Brooklyn: Florist plays Silent Barn on 02.20

Emily Sprague's DIY dream folk project Florist conjures up some of the most consistently sparse and quiet music you can hear in Brooklyn these days. This is pretty much a love affair between Eily's delicate melodies, a few assorted sounds, and the hiss of cassette tape, which seems to be the band's format of choice for both recording and releasing - by the way, who would have thought, 25 years ago, that hiss would have come back to fashion? We all hated it!). The three releases to date feature some beautiful songs, like the one streaming below, title track of the 2013 six track cassette "We Have Been This Way Forever." You can see Florist live at Silent Barn on February 20.
