1  StegoSarahs StegoSarahs Can Con
Simple Subtraction - (Self-Released))
https://stegosarahs.bandcamp.com/ Band Website @StegoSarahs

When sunlight flicks at a prism, you hold your breath and will it to last. Calgary-based Sarah Rowe offers just such a gift with the downtempo subtlety that is StegoSarahs.
Simple Subtraction is simply tenacious. Inspired by Brian Eno’s Oblique Strategies, it is just enough of everything. With every track, Rowe establishes her goal — “to make things simpler” — and moves convincingly toward it, creating a home-like inner space where questions are formed, asked and answered.
— Adrienne Mercer Breen
