Listen to Balance and Composure’s collected emotional roller coaster in “Run From Me”

Balance and Composure put out the Slow Heart 7″ for Record Store Day this year, a dual single containing two new tracks, including the laid-back “Run From Me”.

Never dirtying their guitars too much, the locals take 4+ minutes to create a swaying song relying on vocalist Jon Simmons’ soothing voice to drive home some serious feels. Laying in between Tigers Jaw and Turnover, the band’s euphoric sound tackles emotional songwriting in not an “in your face / to hell with everything” way, but by being cool, calm, and ...

Featured Image by Gavin St. Ours

We’ve all heard it from that one friend who is a die-hard fan: that records sounds better, and that analog is better than digital. Ask anyone who loves to shop for vinyl and they will surely volunteer some personal intuitive feedback regarding their favorite records.

The same can be said for albums recorded for mono before stereo sound was commercialized around 1957-58. The opportunity to listen ...
