A year ago was released under the name polarbud Brings Up Old Ghosts, a collection of demos and alternate versions of polarbird’s tunes, recorded by Olivier alone at home.
Today he puts forward a new batch of six tunes, entitled Strange Encounters, a few weeks before polarbird’s new album. This time, he has conveyed a few guests: Odile Lespérance on violin on “Gone” and “W.O.N.”, and Guillaume from polarbird on bass on “Good Morning do you love me?”, a cover from the late Dogs. And for the finishing, he relied on Ben Auriel from studio Bellagio for the sound side and on Half Bob for the visual side.
You can listen to – and download at free pricing – the result on Bandcamp.
