Happy album release day to Michael Stasis!

Listen to “RIP III” via The Line of Best Fit here: http://www.thelineofbestfit.com/news/latest-news/michael-stasis-streams-arbutus-records-debut-rip-iii-in-full-premiere

Grab LP & CD here: http://arbutusrecords.com/?shopp_product=michael-stasis-rip-iii

For his first release on Arbutus, RIP III is the third in a “greatest hits” series. Presenting a broad range of material, from playing with trial software in his bedroom to learning from acclaimed producer Jorge Elbrecht and stumbling into a thriving community in the Bay Area, Michael has drifted through many scenes to collaborate, perform and grow, all patiently under the radar. Largely self-recorded, his restless output (over two hundred songs) has jumped sonically and stylistically, leaving some listeners to wonder if it’s the same artist at all. Stasis calls it “playlist mentality”, a fractured approach borrowed from current listening patterns and dwindling attention spans. This intuitive tactic, he hopes, will keep people interested, rather than lamenting a bygone era of classic anything.
