The Parish of Little Clifton is the project of multi-instrumentalist and Agassiz, BC native, Simon Bridgefoot. The first collective sounds to come out of this project came about with his single, "Pines/Sun" and b-side "The Letzen Monats", drawing comparisons to Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada and Four Tet. A few months later saw the release of an "honest, folk-tronica" EP entitled "Haselnus" which was released on digital label, Cultus Vibes. His next release came in the form of a 7” entitled "Septemberish" which gave listeners a taste of what would be his debut full-length release, "Portia".

Released near the end of September of 2011 was his debut full-length album entitled "Portia", a 9-track collection of blissful electronic numbers that range from beat-heavy and complete instrumental cuts to more vocal and sample-based tracks

"It’s a seamless album, a consistent palette providing discrete stitching. A Washed Out-like electronic haze is background to Bridgefoot’s imaginative drum loops, both ultimately settling below manufactured melodies sung or stolen.
Bridgefoot excels in manipulating evocative vocal samples into his songs, and it is difficult to put a finger on where one line ends and another begins, or even to parse out what each might be saying."

Since the release of "Portia", Simon Bridgefoot (The Parish) has released two singles for free on his Bandcamp page: "Together", a percussive, synth-driven house jam that'll have you throwing your hands in the air; and "Light-Handed" a sample-heavy, wall of texture interrupted mid-way by a driving kick drawing comparisons to Gold Panda.
The Parish of Little Clifton has also been involved in remixes for artists such as, Oh No! Yoko, Bank Heist, and The Patience as well as "hazy-tribal number" "In The Garden", a contribution to Teen Daze's Cultus Vibes compilation, "Together".

"What The Parish of Little Clifton has become now is a way for me to be intimate and honest with myself. I have realized that once a piece of music is heard by another, it is no longer mine. For now that song is someone else’s to emote to. What “The Parish” is now, in some senses, is a world that i am sharing with other people. The songs that i write have very intimate connections to realities in my own life."

"To lay on your floor and grapple with the breath-taking washes of The Parish of Little Clifton’s discography, is a purest of joys. Hailing from the Vancouver low lands, Simon Bridgefoot’s music is more reminiscent of the southern coast of france or the beaches of Malta. I strongly recommend this compendium of naval gazing nap music/train music/reading music to any of the avid electronic fans out there. It is a welcome edition to the bite size Canadian scene of elect and fertile electronic dominators such as Teen Daze, Mark Templeton, and the entire Hands label/collective.
