Revolution Music Company

Joseph Shabason, Matthew Sage, and Nicholas Krgovich form a pretty perfect triangle, musically and geographically. Based out of Toronto, Colorado, and Vancouver respectively, the three convened at Sage's converted barn studio at the foot of the Rockies to diagram their kindred ability to extract grandeur from the most passable of life's daily details. On his own, saxophonist Joseph Shabason warps late 80s adult-contemporary and smooth jazz aesthetics into tidepools of fourth-worldly sound design. M. Sage, in a parallel sense, blends his skills as an instrumentalist with synthesis and field recordings to create auditory reflections of the natural world that are as whimsical as they are profound. Sitting cozily between these two heartfelt experimentalists is singer Nicholas Krgovich, whose observational slice-of-life poetics paint a relatable face onto his collaborators' calm expressionism, both guiding and highlighting it's deep sense of affect. The resulting album, prosaically titled Shabason, Krgovich, Sage warmly invites sound artist Matthew Sage into the world of wry and melancholy micro-miracles that Shabason and Krgovich established on 2020's Philadelphia, and 2022's At Scaramouche. The groundwork laid by Shabason & Krgovich on their previous joint offerings is omnipresent, but it's amplified by the joy Sage must have felt shepherding them to his idyllic and intimate new homebase. Prior to meeting up with Sage, the pair's music often dealt with the beauty of The Great Indoors, but their new host and collaborator has smartly refocused their lenses on the small wonders of wilder locales. Like magic, Shabason, Sage, and Krgovich have not just musically photographed their surroundings, they've managed to reproduce them exactly. The sharp open air, the quiet thrill of an escaped routine, the self-reflective thought-loops during a twilit moment at the edge of a field, all of it's here on Shabason, Krgovich, Sage. Through the trio's skillful ease, the listener is there, too. Genre: Electronic / Post-Rock / New Age
