Below is a commentary by the label.

"Strawberries ripen in spring. It used to be, but it's rapidly receding in our rear-view mirrors. Now the word 'spring' is a disturbing concept. Our season is , even if it's seasonal, it's a paradoxical thing: crops fail, ripen prematurely, or rot out in a flash.But somehow or other, the supermarket shelves are stocked and everywhere. There is a row of buckets of strawberries, but of course their nature is questionable, and they don't taste like the old days, or maybe it's just nostalgia. , we are definitely missing something somewhere, we all know it.

Strawberry Season is a gentle response to this unfortunate state of affairs, neither a false solace nor an escape.Rather, the album often understates the rich sweetness that lingers in our growing anxiety. While 20th-century American popular and folk music focused on the beauty and richness of the prairies, More Eaze now focuses on the small bounties hidden in plain sight. with a similar romantic focus.Blending found sounds, generative music, elegant classical melodic arrangements and hyper-pop vocals like Liz Fraser, Strawberry Season offers a unique solace.Given the opportunity for such deep listening, the overstimulated and undernourished minds may have some hope (hope is needed, of course).

Composer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer and sound artist more eaze guides us step by step to this place of attention. Strawberry Season begins with the soft flowing Gentle Pet.Reminiscent of the Velvet Underground, the song continues with a string arrangement that John Cale may have left for Paris 1919. The second track, Suped, features a kaleidoscope of swirling grocery cash register scanners, which eventually coalesce and release with the delicate beats of a harp.The song reverberates with the sound of a shower in a feeling of elegance.A plastic ring clangs when someone walks in and pulls the curtains.The song expresses a light-hearted yet shocking and moving intimacy.

Strawberry Season's penultimate song, low resolution at santikos, serves as a sustained meditation on all the songs that came before it. Slowly unfolding over the course of nine minutes, at times almost danceable, and then suddenly vanishing, Strawberry Season concludes with rustling clothes, distant snippets of dialogue, creaking floorboards, sighs and snorts.There is a sense of arrival, a temporary relief in the face of uncertainty.It foreshadows seasons that have yet to come, or that can only be seen in dreams.

" Strawberries ripen in the spring. Or so they used to, in a more reliable world, one that seems to be rapidly receding in our collective rearview mirror. Presently, “spring” is a troubled concept — fraught with anxiety. are seasons at all, are paradoxical. Crops fail, or they ripen prematurely, all at once, and into a burst of rot. Impossibly, somehow, the supermarket shelves stay stocked (mostly, for now at least), and there are buckets of strawberries on every corner.But, of course, their nature is suspect.And they don't taste like they used to.Or maybe that's just ruinous nostalgia.But somewhere along the way we certainly lost something.Everybody knows.


Strawberry Season (Leaving Records, November 9 2022) responds tenderly to this sorry state of affairs, not with false comfort — nor escapism. Rather, the album conveys, often wordlessly, that there remains an abundance of sweetness amidst our increasing unease. of twentieth century American popular and folk music may have dwelt on the beauty and plenitude of the prairie, More Eaze applies a similar Romantic focus to the small bursts of fecundity that now hide in plain sight. Blending found sound, generative music, a knack for elegant, classically-informed melodic arrangement, and a sort of Liz-Fraser-by-way-of-hyperpop approach to vocals, Strawberry Season offers unique solace — providing an occasion for the kind of deep listening that our overstimulated and undernourished spirits require if there is to be any hope at all (and of course there must be hope).


More Eaze (serving as composer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, and sound artist) guides us incrementally to this locus of attentiveness. Strawberry Season begins with the softly sweeping gentle pets. Early intimations of Velvet Underground give way, indeed, to a string arrangement that John Cale might have saved for Paris 1919. The second track, Suped, features a kaleidoscopic swirl of grocery checkout scanners that eventually coalesce and release with the subtle strumming of a harp. of feeling, a shower starts to run. Someone steps inside, pulling the curtain back, sending the plastic rings clattering. Moments later, the unmistakable sound of the showerer blowing their nose — an inclusion that is at once light-hearted and jarringly, movingly intimate.

Strawberry Season's second to last song, low resolution at santikos, serves as a sustained meditation on all that has come before it. Building slowly throughout its nine minutes, teething, at times, on the edge of danceability, it dissipates suddenly, and Strawberry Season concludes with the rustling of clothes, snippets of distant conversation, creaking floorboards, an exhale and a sniff. There is a feeling of having arrived, of temporary reprieve in the face of uncertainty. A hint of a season yet to come, or one that is perhaps only now accessible in dreams.
