feel like sol is one of the most slept on artists ever. worked with sparklehorse, did a beautiful debut LP and EP and then disappeared

yeah this is really good, what happened to her?

only work I see following her 2012 EP was a track for the Herbie fully loaded OST, "Nice Car". Shame as there was already a 6 year gap between the debut LP and EP. One can hope...

i think there's another thread on her somewhere but yes,she's a bit mysterious. I love that album and that EP. they deserve much wider recognition.

"a track for the Herbie fully loaded OST, "Nice Car"" that is so weird.

oh right, she was inviting people to send in vocal tracks about a year ago for a new project (when she was suddenly active on FB)....and people did. but no idea what's gone on since then. she had to move somewhere.

thank you for the reminder.
'the bells of 12' is sooo good.
had forgotten about this album.
not heard anything after that release though.

"Nice Car" sounds absolutely nothing like her other stuff, too, it's so weird

Thanks for the info on her more recent projects akm!

Mark - the EP that came out afterwards is pretty understated and very slow, with some piano and other orchestral flourishes iirc. Drew a comparison to it on the sundfor thread as there's a similar switch from dream pop to minimalist balladry on the new sundfor

yeah, the album has quite a lot of similarities to my old faves, joy zipper, in places.

just dug through one chunk of the cd-r pile as i thought i may have had the ep sent to me, but so far no such luck.

"Enter One" has apparently become the go-to soundtrack for moments of sweet dramatized sorrow, probably involving death and/or guns. as far as I can tell (mostly from trawling youtube comments lol) these are its most noteworthy appearances:

2007 - CSI: Miami (American TV series)
2008 - Ideal (UK TV series)
2014 - The Rover (Australian film)
2014 - Son of a Gun (Australian film)
2015 - solo performance by Brynn Rumfallo (dance moms girl)
2015 - trailer for I Remember You (American film)
2016 - Standoff (American film)
2017 - Dark (German Netflix series)

it's also been sampled by a few Soundcloud rappers:

2015 - Cyrus - Northside
2015 - A_Wax - Been a Long Time
2016 - Jutes - Free

I'm not sure how to account for its widespread use over the past few years, though it's probably a matter of "person hears song in movie/show, decides to use in their own movie/show", repeat until ubiquitous

oddly enough she updated FB today, maybe prompted by me sending her a message asking if there was more music on the way.

"We all know I get a D- for visibility and marketing prowess on the ether web. But help is at hand. Music is nearly ready. I want you all to go to Sol Seppy channel on youtube, ( Marieke just made this channel for me) There is a beautiful new video there for " Music " Jon Frank and I have teamed up, and his work is stunning. Have a look, I hope you love it. I will post a link to the website soon for pre orders for the album. Sophia"
