Singer-songwriter Michael Feuerstack built his name as Snailhouse during the mid '90s. These days, he's out on the road under his own name promoting his album Tambourine Death Bed, as well as being in the midst of working on Singer Songer, a project flexing his songwriting chops from a new perspective as he writes material for other artists to sing. Before his show in Edmonton, Feuerstack shared his soundtrack picks with Vue.
Morning: Usually Bob Dylan because, no matter what mood you are in, it is the breakfast jam. This surprises some people, but a common favourite around here is Self Portrait.
Noon: This is when I put on something that I can enjoy while I also concentrate on other things. Lately it's been Evening Star by Fripp and Eno. I know I am supposed to focus on it, but hey, it works for me this way.
Night: Jenny Hval. This Norwegian artist has two records and they are both beautiful and creepy in all the best ways.
On the road
Morning: I often get up early, before everyone else, and listen to some song-y music in my headphones while lying there. Lately, it would have to be Colours by Devon Sproule and Mike O'Neill, which is amazing on any occasion.
Noon: There is usually driving involved at this point, and there is not much better driving music than Jonathan Richman, although the new Marine Dreams makes its way in there too.
Night: For night drives, it has to be something great sounding and intricate, like Here We Go Magic, or maybe Diana Ross if we are feeling amped. V
