Flowertown is Karina Gill and Michael Ramos. The San Francisco duo first wrote a song together because their respective projects (Cindy + Tony Jay) were scheduled to play a show together in March 2020. The show didn't happen, but as shelter-in-place took effect they started trading song ideas and writing collaboratively, sending voice memos back and forth and eventually recording the songs in Karina’s basement on a 4 track.



Flowertown released two EPs on cassette with Paisley Shirt Records, and here they are remastered and compiled on vinyl by Mt.St.Mtn. Stripped-down dream pop, lo-fi reverberated vocal duties traded back and forth, & slow jam moodscapes. You can feel our long overcast summer days and those moments that the sun breaks up the clouds. Tracks on this release, like “Natural Light”, recall pop melodies but under the haze of a hissing and clicking cassette tape. “The Rope” and “Pieta” give us these voices of subjects trying to cope. They’re not idealists, not romantics; they just want it all to have happened differently. The songs find the perfect blend between the not-so-distant observer of Karina’s lyrics and the removed cynic in Mike’s songwriting.
