Check out Foxes in Fiction

imageI came across Foxes in Fiction in my google feeds this weekend and being a huge music fan I thought I'd help spread the word. From what I can gather from his blog, Foxes in Fiction is a solo project from Warren Hildebrand of Toronto, ON Canada. I have listened to it once so far and am pretty impressed. The first half of the album (tracks 1-9) has an ambient sound whereas the second half reminds me a lot of Bradford Cox of Atlas Sound. Give it a listen.

"The whole thing was recorded for a kind of cassette A Side / B Side format so there is a pretty obvious division in style between the two. The first flows kind of as one long dreamlike hallucination song that segways pretty easily into each track, and is meant to inspire some pretty specific moods, while the second side more lucid pop songs. A big inspiration in making a lot of these songs was short-tracked hip hop albums like J Dillas' 'Donuts'. I don't know how obvious this is. It wasn't even really supposed to have an 'album' feel but it just sort of turned out that way, even two albums?, though I'm hoping it kind of has something for everyone.

Most of these songs are tracks that arose from restlessness, breaks between classes, insomnia and 5 AM isolation while in my in my apartment in Toronto. A couple of them are reworkings of old tracks that most of you guys probably have never heard but I felt would be fitting on this release. In the new few days I'm gonna post the lyrics and some detailed explanations into the meaning behind some of these tracks, cause who doesn't love to know? Hope you enjoy it. xoxo"
