Montreal’s Yves Jarvis has unveiled the details of his third full-length record. Entitled ‘Sundry Rock Song Stock’, the LP is set for digital release on September 25th and vinyl on November 13th.
Proposed Yves: “What does it mean to earn a fortune? I’ve demonized people who can’t empathize and can’t reciprocate, because that’s how it feels. I’m just playing a role there. On the other side, everybody is pandering for props, even the good ones. That disgusts me, but I don’t want to criticize it in the real world. I just want to criticize it in a song. I see people going back and forth arguing and it seems like a nightmare to me. You have to listen to my music if you want to know what I think about anything.”
On ‘Sundry Rock Song Stock’, Yves continues to refine his creative approach to the core of his being, where music and life intertwine in harmonious fashion. His latest album fuses genre elements into a symbiotic relationship where wistful folk, tender R&B, pastoral prog, and ‘musique concrète’ experiments feed into one another to grow lush new forms.
Though he maintains an air of mystery with his lyrics, Yves’ whisper-soft words can be interpreted as both deeply personal and politically motivated in ways we haven’t heard from him before.
