Faustina Masigat's Debut Album Streaming on PopMatters TodayFaustina Masigat's Debut Album Streaming on PopMatters Today
by TV News Desk - Apr 2, 2018

Faustina Masigat's debut album is one of keen reflection and personal struggles that the Portland songwriter has assembled into relatable and beautiful prose, striking a comfortable balance between abstract introspection and objective observations. Her self-titled album, coming out this Friday on Mama Bird Recording Co. (Haley Heynderickx, Courtney Marie Andrews), is streaming in full at PopMatters who say Masigat 'develops an intuitive, captivating listen throughout.' While speaking to the process of capturing her debut album, Masigat says 'there is a mundanity in heartbreak that I struggled to break out of for years. The recording process was deliberately very bare bones because I wanted that tension to be as palpable as possible. If a person really commits to their own suffering, absolutely everything becomes colored by that action. There are songs that carry that weight more than others, but the whole album was inspired by that period of time. I had had writer's block, and it felt like I was moving from situation to situation with no anchor. Every resource I had went into writing and breaking out of that monotony.' (more...)
