Montreal’s Margret aka Chris Hauer is set to release a gorgeous new experimental-folk album – The Most Fun that Two People Can Have Together – on August 9th and we’re happy to give you a taste.
Album opener “Last Forgiveness” is quite dirgeful at the beginning thanks to Hauer’s disheartened mumbles but the song slowly picks up steam while Hauer sings, “It’s kinda funny how it all wound up, seemed to fall right into place”, and a joyful tangle of instruments unravels.
Hauer tells us “Last Forgiveness” is a “pump-up song.” Adding, “The bass line was heavily inspired by the song “Night Falls on Hoboken” by Yo La Tengo. It’s home to one of my favourite bass lines ever. My friend Max [Cuchet] plays saxophone on it – he was learning to play at the time, so he could only really play two or three notes.”
