The Funz’ sea-blue period finds them ambling through shivering, shimmering shanties. These rimes of the ancient marine biologist bob in and out of whisper-soft washes like the earliest offerings of Akron/Family. Irish-Canadian arthouse imprint Wist Rec. sticks to its vision of bookshelf curios with the songs tucked inside a typically winsome watercolour zine.

La période bleue-mer de The Funz’ les voit déambuler dans des chantiers chatoyants, frissonnants. Les reflets givrés d’une ancienne biologie marine vont et viennent à chaque ressac chuchotant, tels les toutes premières offrandes d’Akron/Family. Les parutions canado-irlandaises Wist Rec. continuent d’exciter le regard en habillant ces chansons d’un zine caractéristique à l’aquarelle vaporeuse.
