Baby Giraffe is the output of 27 year old Michael Newton. Self recorded
and produced in his bedroom in Toronto, Ontario Canada.
A former member of Toronto band’s The Diableros, The Smear Campaign and
Sons of Brixton and The Autumn Stones, Michael has been recording and self-releasing albums as
‘baby giraffe’ since early 2005.
Often heavily produced, never the less, naked home recordings, fret
scratching, feedback and technically wrong vocal takes that just
happened to feel right have all been left as part of the song. For, it
is, what makes the song a song.
Here’s Your Horizon is the fifth completed Baby Giraffe album.
Clocking in at just over 30 minutes, Michael has constructed songs that
favor sparse electronic tinged drumming, hand percussion, reverb soaked
guitars, midi-controlled string sections and often whisper soft vocals.
Here’s Your Horizon is the soundtrack
to being in your mid-twenties, unemployed, medicated and very very very
fond of evenings in with a few bottles of blush wine.
For a generation that would rather sit in and create alone, rather go out and destroy en masse.
