Today, June 7th, tofusmell is sharing the new song“Keith,”which chronicles a phone call with a faraway confidant, zeroing in on unrealized longing amid a wall of lo-fi fuzz of sonic inspirations that recall Elliot Smith and Sufjan Stevens. The song, which comes with an animated visual directed by Jeanette Takako Fantone, is fromHumor, tofusmell’s forthcoming EP, out June 30th on all DSPs from Hardly Art.
Hardly Art has signed tofusmell, the recording project from Orlando, Florida musician and singer Rae Chen, and will release Humor, their first EP for the label, on all DSPs worldwide on June 30th, 2023. Humor,which includes the singles “Basil Noodles” and “Keith,” was produced and mixed by tofusmell at Rae’s Home in Winter Garden, Florida, and mastered by Sarah Register in New York. It follows the release of “Shower Song,” released last year as part of the label’s 15th Anniversary Singles Series.
