“It’s a portrait of who we are as collaborators, as really long term friends and as extended family as well,” leader Emily Sprague says of her band’s new self-titled album. Florist is also the strongest album of the band’s decade-long career, an immersive work that conveys the magic of the earth and of family, and the whole of the band’s heart.

Marc Merza (born Marchael San Felix Merza, May 13, 1989) is a Filipino-American artist and musician based in Los Angeles, California. His recordings are at times improvisational and spontaneous, and other times, heavily crafted, sculpted and reworked. He has spent the past ten years performing and collaborating with other musicians in Brooklyn (New York), Oakland (California), Tokyo (Japan), Lisbon (Portugal), Manila (Philippines) and beyond. He often composes on guitar, clarinet and Kulintang (a Filipino gong set) to speak to others, but the use of tape loops, field recordings and electronic equipment are not foreign in Marc’s music.
