[Premiere] Folded Out (live session) – Stolen Jars

I’ve got something pretty exciting for you all today. A little ways back in the year I stumbled upon the indie-folkers, , and their warm and fabulous track, “Folded Out.” Now, the group’s got a live session they’re releasing today to show that the same cohesive sound you hear via audio stream is just the way you’d imagine it visually.

In a tight, little, ok..I would say cozy living room space, the band sets up their instruments and lets it all out. It’s fascinating, like watching every cog in the wheel do it’s own thing, yet the outcome is this full, encapsulating folky sound that just washes all over you leaving you wanting more. As someone who absolutely loves the live show experience, I always dig when bands get to share that process with you in any which format they can.

Another way to fall in love with this track all over again. Click play, y’all and be sure to keep tabs on Cody Fitzgerald, Molly Grund, Greg Nissan, Will Radin, and Tristan Rodman – better known as Stolen Jars, .

And, more about the making of the first single for their upcoming album, Kept:
“We started writing Folded Out in the middle of the night. Molly and I had stayed up making Joseph Cornell-esque boxes. As the night went on, the boxes got better, the music got better. The song came out of that moment.
I wrote the music first, short riffs and bits that came to me in 45-second increments over the next few months. Even before adding vocals with Molly, I had to record over a hundred tracks before I felt like the song was whole.
This was one of the first songs we wrote for the album, it was the first song that pushed us towards this new sound, and so, it only makes sense that we should get to share this song first.”
