Aaron Powell (Born 1993) is better known by his lo-fi singer songwriter moniker Fog Lake where he creates music that’s been described as “a complex collage of nebulous angst and heartfelt nostalgia.” Born and raised on the island province of Newfoundland, Canada and in the small rural town of Glovertown (populated by only about 2000 people), Powell began recording drone music in his high school years before moving onto to more pop-oriented structures later in college, releasing his first album Farther Reaches in January of 2013 and Virgo Indigo in Feburary of 2014, the latter being released by Brooklyn based label Orchid Tapes. While seldom playing live or touring at this point, Powell began collaborating with other musicians to bring the project into a live band setting, touring the east coast of Canada multiple times, while also prolifically releasing records such as Victoria Park in 2015 and Dragonchaser in 2017. Since then he has toured with such acts as Foxing, Helena Deland and Hovvdy.
Today, Powell lives in Montreal, Quebec writing, recording and playing with his active band. His new full length release entitled Captain will be released on July 5th, 2018 via Montreal-based cassette label Stack Your Roster and on vinyl via UK based label Dog Knights Records.
“Harrowing nostalgia. Songs that were not created to glorify low places. Instead they explore the dark valleys where everything has settled and must be interpreted.” - Extreme Chalance
Foxes in Fiction
Foxes in Fiction is Canadian-born NYC-based Warren Hildebrand, a musician and founder of the independent record label Orchid Tapes. Their latest record Trillium Killer was released on October 18th through Orchid Tapes.
Wyatt Smith has been recording music and playing shows in the Bay Area and Santa Cruz local scene since late 2017. Wyatt was the former lead member of the band Slug who released their first tape on Oakland based label, Smoking Room.
Wyatt first released “Free” after recording it in their hometown, Pleasant Hill. Their first EP “Flat Earth” came out on Big Crazy’s tape-based label and shortly after that they self released another EP “Promise”. Both of them were recorded in the dorms at SFSU. In March 2019 their first full-length album “Trash” came out through First to Bloom Records. Two months later, their next record “Dead” was released by Citrus City Records in May. Wyatt’s band has gone on two west coast tours and have played with artists such as Young Jesus, Justus Proffit, Sports Coach, Ancient Pools, Poppies, and Toner.
Wyatt’s newest record “Maple” is 12 tracks and was mixed by Melina Duterte of Jay Som. In “Maple,” Wyatt sticks to using minimal production equipment, but has greatly developed in their songwriting and story-telling. Melina Duterte’s assist in mixing and production makes the record stand out from Wyatt’s previous work and ties together the whole record into a cohesive piece.
