Stream Marmoset's 'Transference' compilation LP, out today

 Local record label and boutique music agency Marmoset specializes in seeking out some of the most talented acts and songs ranging from the timeless and rare to the emerging and engaging. Their latest endeavor, the Transference compilation LP, focuses particularly on songs lesser unknown and possibly forgotten.

In making Transference, Marmoset's producers combined through the public domain for songs 100 years old and up. As they developed their extensive collection, they invited a series of artists join in on reimagining and rerecording some of these tracks. Marmoset's team worked closely with the participating artists in evolving each track from its original beauty to a newly fashioned merit.

Some of the artists featured on Transference include Ural Thomas and the Pain doing a soulfully rhythmic rendition of "Hot Time in the Old Town," originally recorded in 1896, The Helio Sequence's vision of the Bing Crosby-recorded standard "Down Among the Sheltering Palms" as "Out Among the Sheltering Pines," and an electronic interpretation of Eugene Lockhart and Ernest Seitz 1919 classic "The World is Waiting for the Sunrise" done by Distance and Frankie Simone.

What Marmoset has managed to create is an anthology of imaginative appreciation, showcasing a history of imaginative talent and musicianship. Dive into the 10 tracks on Transference below.

Artist to Watch: Bouquet

Songwriting duo Bouquet treat ecomony as an asset and not an opportunity. The elemental intimacy of their mute soundscapes always seems like it's on the verge of breaking free, as if you're expecting that grand moment to arrive at any moment. It never does. There's a gothic edge to the duo's chilly, patient instrumentation, with singer Carolyn Pennypacker Riggs's callous vocals tethered to Max Foreman's gauzy, metronomic vintage synths. Their latest EP, In a Dream, is quiet and impalpable, conscious of its calculated makeup though willing to be found if you accept its cold embrace. It has a release date of March 10 via Ulrike/Folktale Records, and make sure to catch them performing an in-store at Origami Vinyl on March 8.
