R.E. SERAPHIN, Tiny Shapes, LP

Tiny Shapes is the debut album of ex-TALKIES frontman, RAY SERAPHIN. Recording under the almost-alias R.E. SERAPHIN for the first time, Seraphin’s Tiny Shapes is paisley pop meets guitar-centric post-punk. R.E. Seraphin’s lyrical point-of-view is both cynical and sentimental—falling somewhere between The Replacements and The Feelies circa The Good Earth. Musically, jangly yet sturdy instrumentation collide with hushed vocals. This approach is best heard in opening cut “Today Will Be Kind”—a tune that offers a hopeful view of love gone sour. Engineered and co-produced by JASPER LEACH (Tony Molina) and mastered by MATT BULLIMORE (THE MANTLES), Tiny Shapes was written following a move from Austin to the Bay Area. While re-acclimating to life back in his hometown, Seraphin enlisted original Talkies rhythm section, OWEN KELLEY (SLEEPY SUN) and PHIL LANTZ (NEUTRALS, COCKTAILS) to help develop his songs.
