Secret Lover – Far Off [All My Thoughts]


Seb Wildblood’s third and youngest brainchild, All My Thoughts, gets ready for its 5th artist EP and 7th release overall to drop. Established just over a year ago, the label was meant to be a platform to showcase the deeper leanings of Wildblood’s musical palate. One calendar year later and seven releases in, two of which were full length albums released on cassettes, it’s clear that the Church head honcho has another successful imprint on his hands. With a fairly coherent sound that ranges from ambient leanings to more late night, analog jams, the distinction from its older sister labels couldn’t be clearer, establishing All My Thoughts as a prime hub for talent largely unconnected, at least in terms of sound, to its older siblings.Next up on the docket is Secret Lover‘s (soundcloud) “Lost & Found” EP. The Vancouver-based producer, DJ and commander-in-chief of Western Canada’s vinyl staple, Heart To Heart, delivers three original tracks alongside a remix from fellow Vancouverite, Khotin, an assortment that finds itself comfortably snug in the AMT aesthetic. Our premiere today is the A1 and original mix of Far Off. Featuring sparsely populated, pleasant chords and a lighthearted keyboard melody, this number is a slowly developing journey. Pairing the melodic elements with a buoyant, rubbery bassline and simple yet groovy percussion, Secret Lover manages to deliver a piece that makes you want to meander through the scenic backdrop of the Canadian rockies. The rest of the EP is worth a good listen too, but we won’t spoil it. You should get your hands on a copy and do your own due diligence over at the All My Thoughts Bandcamp page.
