ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Goodnight Streetlight is an experimental electronic/pop project based in Vancouver, BC., the concoction of the writer and artist Raoul Fernandes (with occasional help from friends.) It has evolved from a playful low-fi jumble to a more assured, melodic and layered sound. One may file it under dreamy electronica as long as those dreams also include those of waking up as an insect, or being chased by geometrical shapes through a meadow.

'The Curfew Bell', Goodnight Streetlight's 3rd full length, was over 2 restless years in its construction, some of it in the suburbs, some in a city, and some in a cabin on a small island. The general direction of the album was to explore more complex and dynamic arrangements, yet still keeping the simple sleepy melodies and eerie noises that have defined Goodnight Streetlight’s sound.

Although a lot of the music was composed and created on a laptop, a point was made to include more found sounds (camera's clicking, rustling paper, Morse code beeps etc) as background textures and percussion. Samples were cut up from old wandering guitar jams, noises were made on Raoul’s little brother's drum set, and the ol' toy casio keyboard was brought back for a couple tracks. In the spirit of revisiting these earlier themes, speaking voices were requested from some faraway internet friends, adding to the narrative of the compositions. Altogether, The Curfew Bell forms the most assured and adventurous of Goodnight Streetlight’s ouputs, helped considerably by the masterful production of Aaron Clark who spent many sleepless nights fixing up the errors and bringing the album to life.

Sidenote: A booklet/mini-zine of writings comes with the CD which is a collection of fictional “crime beat” police reports set in a strange and magical town called Blinksville.
