about

We design our shifting realities. One minute, things make sense. The next minute, we are unraveled. We must fight to create ourselves or die.

Fueled on desert energy, cheap synthesizers, and 4-track home recorders, Digital Leather began as Shawn Foree's one-man bedroom project in Tucson, Arizona. The music was intended to be shared with a small circle of friends only. Without warning, that circle grew. Digital Leather has since moved in several stylistic directions, but has always adhered to one law: nothing lasts.

"Feeet" is an eclectic compilation of mainly tape-only released songs written and recorded between 2008 and 2018. Ranging from catchy synthpop to colder dark-wave tunes, these tracks represent a dark journey, where sometimes, despair reigns freely. Sometimes hatred is the only food there is. Sometimes love is an extended nightmare. But it goes further than that.

Foree:

"I just keep writing. Usually I feel like my life is passing me by while I'm holed up in my apartment hunched over a synthesizer. It's hard to maintain relationships when you live in your head all the time. Some people will treat you like you're crazy for having an imagination. That's bullshit on their part, but it still sucks to be chastised for having a brain, especially when it’s from someone you care about. The payoff is worth it, though, even if you lose that someone in the process. The raw energy of honest art, to express yourself in a real way, connects you to something higher than love. Creation is a unique high and I'm addicted to it. This album spans a long period of time and represents these kind of lows and highs well. The tracks have appeared on various small run releases, but now I understand that they belong together. It feels worth it."


We sincerely hope this exceptional collection of dark, outsider pop music feels fresh and alive to you. At least for the time being, before the world blows up.
