Leopardo LP announcement ~ green garage genius from Switzerland
Top of the morning out to all you good people out there. I am pleased to unveil our first release by a Swiss group, a nice and high bunch of players from the mountainous city of Fribourg. This is their fourth album, and by far my fave in theLeopardodiscography. If you also enjoy Lou Reed, Michael Hurley, Country Teasers, the banjo, Borat, fuzz guitar, Chrome, Syd Barrett, and the blues, well shit - this one may also be for you! Dig on...
Leopardo - Malcantone LP [EUR/UK customers order fromLe Pop Club(CH) orSDZ(FR)]
"Somewhere in the elastic universe of speculative ontology a troupe of well-mannered Euros saw the June 1st, 1974 concert in London, took this sole germ back to the serene Swiss Alps (birthplace of LSD) and fecundated it with honesty - like some lifelong lysergic therapy session - until they emerged saturated with colors no one knows the name of, dripping of colors that sound like motions known solely to them. And now they've invited the rest of the world to hear. Upon first listen I was reminded of how exciting those Jeffrey Novak solo albums were - delicate pop music accessible to us, uh... malcontents. Providing the mids between Eno's highs and Ayers' lows, it's a stunning display of both art and artisanship, and like a kid who aces his test without studying, it seamlessly incorporates the crisp aural aesthetic of Chrome and layered nonchalance of Velvet Underground without stepping into the gated communities of those bands' wannabees. Echoes of Morton, Cale, Barrett... a madcap laughing, white heat from warm jets in the eyeball of hell... And yet, it sounds only like Leopardo. Make sure you listen to it seven times in a row like I did." -Brandon Gaffney
Packaged in a full color gatefold jacket with lyric insert, download code, and hype sticker. First 100 copies on Red vinyl / 400 on Black.
We will be back on this coming (Bandcamp) Friday, May 7th with new album announcements and preorders for LYSOL and SPLLIT LPs. Holy shit. If you need to add to an existing preorder, I highly suggest using the "local pickup" option on the site to avoid duplicate shipping charges. Or just shoot a mesage and we'll figure it out. Thanks for the support folks! It is truly the dream to be able to bring y'all music on a full time basis now.
Oh, and check it out a new Spread Joyinterview and live set ! Stay strong and safe out there, see ya again Friday.
