About:

Pressed from ancient molds or, moreoften, forged in rotary kilns, the music of The Warmth has primarily been discovered floating just below the surface of small bodies of water and is best suited to soundtrack the stories told in cave paintings.  Carl Saff (interpreter) and Paul Foreman (raw materials specialist) remain steadfast as the unlikely curators of these artifacts and have ensured proper care and documentation since their initial discovery (no specific dates have ever been verified).

Although enthusiasts have widely speculated on the motivation behind the creation of the Fox & Weathervane period material, no definitive conclusion has been agreed upon.  These songs are primarily recognizable by their lush and luminious green color.  In early 2009, Saff and Foreman released minimal details regarding their more recent findings, thus far simply referred to as the Vulture series.

 2009,

The Creeper, 1971 was released in July of 2009 as a free digital download from The Warmth's website.  The first three tracks are originals that were recorded around the same time as Fox & Weathervane, but did not wind up on the album.  Track 4 is a cover of the Spiritualized song "Pure Phase."  The cover drawing was done by Anne Manteleers.

 2006,

Fox & Weathervane is the first Warmth album to feature Carl Saff.  Released in 2006, F&W is a sprawling, psychedelic electronic-pop album.  The majority of the songs began life as home-demos recorded by Foreman and subsequently fleshed out by Saff at his home studio.
