Mia Schoen - Golden Hour Cassette (Albert's Basement, 2017)
"We’re very chuffed to have Melbourne-via-Perth shining star Mia Schoen release her new solo cassette on Albert’s Basement! We all know Mia from New Estate, Huon, Sleepy Township, Mollases (and much more) and here we are basking in her warm light once again. Golden Hour is a bright and complex web of short pop songs, like little worlds that will reveal themselves more and more upon repeat listens, giving much delight." - AB
“Mia’s music is all about possibility. The basic scaffold can be used to construct an array of amazingly creative enterprises. She can be on the wavelength of Brian Wilson one time, then Donovan the next, then Astrud Gilberto the next. You can’t pin it down, you just know it comes from a hundred different places at once and comes together to make something entirely new.
Mia launches Golden Hour in a special one-off band of unbelievably talented pals: Guy Blackman on keys, Mindy Mapp on bass, Tym Krazevac on drums, Natalie Kumpis on drone keys and Bella Cullen on backing vocals.” – D. Nichols
