about

With his debut The Last Of Our Mountains, Edel has learned that home, love and youthfulness are neither innocent nor simple. Born in rural Alberta, his youth was spent between rocky mountains and vast wheat fields. These landscapes shaped the album; a sharp and urgent collection of 8 songs that give way to the adventurous, compassionate and delicate.

Produced by Vancouver’s Winston Hauschild (Hannah Georgas, Hey Ocean), the making of The Last Of Our Mountains saw, a new human being birthed, the last use of Mushroom Studio’s vintage gear, an emergency trip to the hospital and many passages across the Strait of Georgia. The collection is bookended by Bottom Floor Apartment, in which smiles reassure and The Country Where I Came From where the longing for the idea of home and infinite possibilities of youth and love grow narrow. Mike Edel has since relocated from his family’s wheat farm to the seaside city of Victoria BC, where he has quickly formed a personal and musical home.

Track Name: Bottom Floor Apartment
In a bottom floor apartment, we’re living small
In the center of the carpet, white envelopes fall
From my hand, I’m having trouble holding on
Will you understand?

And you look
Into the sky
You turn
And you smile at me

You bend down and pick them up
You break the seal with you finger
We don’t have enough, richer poorer echoes linger

And we look, up out the window
Into the sky
And you turn
And smile at me
And smile at me
