“Don’t want you to feel too much,” Justin Vernon sings upon layers and layers of Stack’s synths. He repeats the statement throughout, while Stack weaves in bass and piano.
Ephemera marks Stack’s second album, following his 2014 debut Tell Me I Belong. “Jeanie” follows the singles “Sweet Summer Sweat” ft. Dijon, “Good Enough” ft. Ant Clemons and “Note to Self” ft. Empress Of.
Outside of his own music, Stack has been busy with collaborations this year. In May, he co-produced Bon Iver’s “PDLIF,” alongside Vernon and BJ Burton. He also contributed drum programming to Haim’s “FUBT” off Women in Music Pt. III, and co-wrote Charli XCX’s “Enemy” from How I’m Feeling Now.
