about

Hush Hush Records is honored to welcome Providence, RI-based composer/producer Daniel Fine aka still life to the family to help present his sophomore full-length album and label debut, 'for a long time time i went to bed early.'

The stories and settings woven into ‘for a long time i went to bed early’ are bound to feel familiar. They are loss and love and city streets, and a yearning for these things to be something more than just events and places and feelings.

These dots on life's map are spun into vibrant, cinematic detail through still life's use of textures, samples, and found sounds, placed gently on an always shifting bed of instrumentals. This potent mixture of grounded and effervescent sounds allows the songs of ‘for a long time i went to bed early’ to feel like memories of the stories they tell, ever flitting between stark realism and phantom realities.

The disconnect between lived and felt experience is the core of still life's work. A walk around your city is very different if you have headphones on. Soundtracking moments multiplies them into something greater. This album spins soundtracks directly from moments, barely taking the time to untangle them and instead romancing them as they are. The rawness this offers ‘for a long time i went to bed early’ is unique and stunning. It exists as a bank of memory, and a trip through it feels like losing yourself in your own remembrances, where colors are bright and skin is soft, and you wonder if it all really was just how you remember it.
