FLOATING ROOM – ” “Tired and True ” Best Albums Of 2020

I got into Floating Room last year when her “Ant” demo proved to be my favourite listening take away from the 2019 Post-Trash comp. Getting to know Maya Stoner’s project from this woozy lo-fi recording, it was cool to ease into some of the songwriter’s hi-er-fi stuff, notably and nominally her re-recording of a 2016 track for an October EP, which sounds just as sleepy and welcoming of a cozy demise as its more ambient predecessor. What starts off as something you’d expect to hear covered on Post-Trash sort of wanders back into ambient territory in the final thirty seconds or so, as the guitar-drums-bass give way to extraterrestrial squeals. our new single, Warm Death (HIFI) today! You may recognize this one from the first FR album, Sunless, which was recorded in my bedroom. Mo Troper who produced this album had the idea to re-record it in a studio pianos and all and I’m glad we did.

Floating Room is the musical project of Portland based multidisciplinary Uchinanchu American artist and DIY veteran Maya Stoner. Their latest EP, “Tired and True”, was written by Stoner and recorded in the summer of 2019 against a backdrop of intense personal transition.

Lead single “Held Open Door” is a meditation on dimming innocence set to jagged guitar pyrotechnics à la Deerhunter and Television. “Freakshow” is a self-professed “pop hit” concerning Stoner’s perceived pariahdom within Portland’s blindingly white, furtively racist punk scene. “Tired and True” is being released independently by Stoner digitally and on vinyl.

“Tired and True” is officially out today and streamable on Spotify/ Itunes/ everywhere! I’m gonna save y’all my sappiness but I really appreciate everyone who has taken the time to listen to these songs or even helped share them: Maya Stoner.

It features contributions from Jon Scheid (Duck. Little Brother, Duck!, Dreamdecay), Aaron Liu (Two Moons), Jared Ridabock (Anne, Wild Guess), and Mo Troper
