The Goodbye Party Shares New Project ‘Stray Sparks’: Listen

Spread the love


Last year, Michael Cantor’s project the Goodbye Party released a new album, Beautiful Motors, his first full-length since 2014. It was filled with some catchy and well-crafted rock songs, but he’s following that up today with a new release called Stray Sparks, which is more muted and plaintive, a 20-minute collection of song sketches and loose ideas and ambient bits that is still pretty potent.

“I assembled the tape over a two-week period this summer. Without any plan, I started recording and blending voice memos from the past year into new songs and sounds,” Cantor said in a statement. “Many of these songs were written in workshops led by [Big Thief]’s Buck Meek and [Lomelda]’s Hannah Read, including ‘Plain Sight,’ ‘Magnolia,’ and ‘Sparrow.’ I just wanted to make something new, quickly, for myself, with no expectation of what it would become.”
