about

Pick a Piper / Squalloscope / Love Cult is a collaborative EP by three artists from Canada, Austria and Russia respectively. The young producers met in New York to attend Red Bull Music Academy and worked out two gorgeous tracks operating on the fringes of pop, weirdo electronics and psychedelia.

The 7" vinyl contains "Never Get Lost", an epic tripped-out semi-naive number fronted by the multi-talented Viennese singer-songwriter Anna Kohlweis, and is backed up with "Ruin", a dark swinging 4/4 groove by Pick a Piper washed away with Anya Kuts' trademark drone chorals.

The digital part of the EP is three additional off-collab tracks, produced by Pick a Piper, Squalloscope and Love Cult separately. Brad Weber, another prime percussionist cum producer type and a longtime drummer for Caribou, fuses krautrock synth drool with piquant afrobeat-inspired patterns, while Squalloscope produces a tender melancholic bedroom-pop masterpiece and Love Cult deliver an overloaded euphoric cassette slab with an eccentric 808 beat.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Pick a Piper / Squalloscope / Love Cult – это мини-альбом-коллаборация трёх музыкантов из Канады, Австрии и России. Молодые продюсеры встретились в Нью-Йорке на Red Bull Music Academy и сделали два психоделических трека на грани поп-музыки и витиеватой электроники.

На стороне A семидюймовая пластинка содержит “Never Get Lost”, эпичную абстрактную песню с вокалом венской девушки Squalloscope (Анна Кольвайс). На обороте пластинки расположился “Ruin” – тёмный номер с 4/4 грувом от Pick a Piper, размытый фирменными дроуновыми вокальными текстурами от Ани Куц (Love Cult).

Цифровой бонус включает сольные композиции от всех трёх проектов. Брэд Вебер (Pick a Piper) – это ещё один талантливый перкуссионист-продюсер. Имея за плечами многолетний опыт игры в Caribou, он сочетает в “Fluency” краут-роковые синтезаторы и афробит-вдохновения. Squalloscope сделала нежный, медленный поп-шедевр, а Love Cult сделали эйфорическую нарезку с перегруженной кассеты, щедро посыпанную 808 битом.

Мастерингом и нарезкой винила занимался Франческо Донаделло (Moderat, Thom Yorke…) Пластинки с большой дыркой рассчитаны на 45 оборотов в минуту, вложены в минималистичный конверт с шелкографским принтом, дизайн Ани Куц. Ограниченный тираж 300 копий, цировая версия прилагается к каждой пластинке.

Track Name: Pick a Piper / Squalloscope / Love Cult - Never Get Lost
down down by the riverside
saw ships and boats and fish collide
the roofs of houses floated by
through the window, through the blinds
dawn to sunset, nine to five
you walk past with a broad stride
i see you smile and smile and smile wide

nothing like a day of doom
when it rains cats and dogs by noon
out of the next pretty cocoon
emerges someone just like you
with different wounds
with different wounds
with different wounds

up up on a different cloud
where sighs are only half as loud
you look down on a different town
and make a move, make a sound
and make a move, make a sound
and make a move, make a sound

one step two steps four steps, stop.
oh, stop the ticking of the clocks
and bells and whistles and tick-tocks
and all the bears and goldilocks
never get lost again
Track Name: Squalloscope - Fever
sometimes when you talk every syllable's like a flock of birds taking off
into watercolor clouds
and every single word takes us places we've never heard of

so come on
in this nothing
be my everything
be that something
in every song we sing
so come on
in this nothing
be my everything
be that something
in all our memories

all these concrete boxes one on top of the other
all of them lanterns at night
and i get so distracted by the emptiness of rooms, it came unexpected
saw them fade into the sky

so what should we do with this missing
except let it dig its nails deeper into the present?
and what should we do with this fever
except let it come nearer?

how close is closest
i'll take you in tiny doses
how near is nearest
for the fierce and the fearless?
how close is closest
i'll take you in tiny doses
how near is nearest
for the fierce and the fearless?
