PICK A PIPER
There’s a difference between when something enters your periphery and when you can truly see it. Sight, the enveloping new album from Toronto electronic explorer Brad Weber, aka Pick A Piper, focuses on authentic connection. The Caribou collaborator’s follow-up to 2017’s acclaimed Distance is an immersive dream of delirious synth shudders, pulsing beats, eclectic instrumentation and diverse digital dimensions of sound that facilitate presence in listening: turning attention to the real life people and places we care for amidst often the isolating aspects of our daily lives. Written alone at home, beginning many tracks on his family piano, Sight brings together influences from eclectic musical tastes ranging from experimental to pop. According to Brad, Sight is “a hopeful statement that encourages others to be as selfless as possible... an album about putting yourself second to others and finding solace and optimism in an increasingly fragmented world.” Sight takes us beyond the trappings of technology, emphasizing earnest, analog essences amidst our hyper-curated modern media- feeds.
Slumbergaze is the new musical endeavor of musician Eric Junker, delivering instrumentals ranging from hip hop grooves to dreamy, atmospheric lush sounds reminiscent of post-rock.
