Yves Jarvis releases video for “Emblem”

Yves Jarvis has shared a new video for the song “Emblem” in anticipation of his album Sundry Rock Song Stock being released on vinylSundry Rock Song Stock is out now everywhere digitally and now on vinyl via Flemish Eye (and ANTI outside of Canada). Jarvis’ 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 Jarvis maintains an air of mystery with his lyrics, Jarvis’s whisper-soft words can be interpreted as both deeply personal and politically motivated in ways we haven’t heard from him before.

As a pre-teen street corner busker, some of Jarvis’s earliest performances took place outside. He returned to an open-air environment for Sundry Rock Song Stock’s creation, setting up a makeshift studio to lay down its foundation of guitar, Nord synth, and Rhodes electric piano. The Montreal-based musician did all of the recording on a reel-to-reel tape machine, he experimented with various off-kilter techniques including a softly tapped steel drum drenched in effects, or melodies played on a wine glass meant to mimic a flute. 

“I want my recordings to be naturalist, so from that sense I am ideally making them outside” explains Jarvis. “More than a musician or a singer, I’m a producer, and any studio I’m in will become my bedroom. Creation is my life and I don’t compartmentalize it at all.”
