From a few listens to this album I get the sense that Pepepiano doesn’t mind mixing a lot of different seasonings into the same soup, because the self-titled LP disregards the confines of a single genre, swerrrrving from Paisley Prince breathless numbers, to Richard D. James breakdowns, to tropic-pastoral New Age scene-setters, and more. But maybe that’ a mischaracterization. The LP, afterall, is a collection of previous shorter releases, so you should expect the Crue to be Motley.

Here’s the artist verbatim:

"FRIENDS AND LOVERS—

I’M PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THE COLLECTED CULMINATION OF RECENT EFFORTS IN THE FORM OF THE FOLLOWING SELF-TITLED FULL LENGTH. OVER THE MONTHS I’VE GARNERED MY TAPES, SMASHED MY MOOG, WHACKED OUT MY CHILDHOOD PLAYSCHOOL TAPE PLAYER AND LOST A ROOMMATE TO THE INCESSANCY OF ROUTINE MIXING. BUT AS ALWAYS, I HAVE TAKEN THE NOT-AT-ALL UNPRECEDENTED STEP OF PROVIDING THIS ALBUM COMPLETELY FREE OF CHARGE.

SEND IT TO YOUR BROS AND LOVE SHARKS.

WITH UNFLAGGING LOVE AND AFFECTION,

-PEPEPIANO

Can’t beat that, right? Check out "Patch"– this ditty fires on some Aphlex Spyringe vibes, kicking into gear at about the 30 second mark. If you love it as much as I do, head over to Bandcamp to download the whole thing, and stalk Pepepiano at his Myspace, Tumblr, and Twitter too. Cheers!

For shits n’ giggles, check out the beginning drum lines on Hooray For Earth’s "Surrounded By Your Friends" and Pepepiano’s "Fire Hands".

One drum line sounds like a slow, sizzurped version of the other — eerie, right?
