Small but not too small

It's my party and I'll cry if I want to
It’s been almost exactly a year since I last wrote about Vancouver experimentalist Stefana Fratila. Now, she’s broken the silence by releasing an album, Grows Up, for free on Bandcamp. It’s got a whopping 25 songs, some of which I’ve heard before and some of which are new to me.

Here’s one that I already knew. Entitled “Small Fists,” it’s a quirky tune that’s laden with plunky keyboards, girlish vocals and stream-of-consciousness lyrics. It changes completely hallway through, as the gentle atmospherics give way to a brisk drum loop and buzzing electronics. This finally is replaced by a droning, ambient coda. This is some weird stuff.
