Canadian singer-songwriter Sea Oleena released and album of self-recorded demos back in April, and titled it Smudges. The acoustics on the recording are a little rough, but the vocals and serene songwriting stand past any restrictions the recording might have put on them. The music on Smudges has now been remixed as as self-titled album, courtesy of Sea Oleena's very own brother, Felix Green, who produces quite a bit of music himself.
"Island Cottage" is one of the most skeletal moments on this new album, and favors atmosphere over filling space. The piano and subtle studio tricks are a real treat, making the track something worth exploring again and again. Stream "Island Cottage" below, and grab the album on a pay-what-you-want basis at Sea Oleena's bandcamp.
