French Horn Rebellion
Written, produced and mixed by brothers Robert and David Perlick-Molinari, The Infinite Music… is a debut album that warps the fabric of dance, electro, rock and funk and may just turn out to be a contender for this year’s most ambitious, multi-faceted and engaging debut album. Crucially, the album also follows an intergalactic narrative that tracks the physical and emotional journey of an unknown French horn player. “There is a story running through the album, it’s about the Universe. We’re pretty clear on what the story is, but what you take away from it may be something entirely different,” says David.
The Brooklyn-based duo already had an illustrious pedigree; David produced MGMT's indie release, Time to Pretend EP for New York indie Cantora Records, and with previous single “Up All Night” they scored a Record of the Week on BBC Radio 1 and an opening slot on the influential Kitsuné Maison compilation series. The band have also remixed the likes of Sleigh Bells, JD Samson & MEN, Two Door Cinema Club, OMD and Alex Winston.
The Great Apes (French Horn Rebellion Backing Band)
On the heels of their recent ‘Damn Dirty’ Live EP release, self-proclaimed ‘funk-blast warriors’ The Great Apes continue to solidify their place in NYC as a beacon for all inter-borough hip shakers. In June they were awarded the ‘Audience Choice’ award at WNYC’s 2012 Battle of the Boroughs after delivering a fierce performance repping Queens County.
Throughout the year the band’s live show remains a tremendous strength in their repertoire. The combination of J.Trom’s soul-man howl with the group’s electro-funk force consistently electrifies fans. “Obviously, your music has an emotional impact,” declared radio host Terrance McKnight to a roaring crowd at the band’s WNYC appearance. That emotional impact comes in large part from The Great Apes’ ability to marry the soul of the past to the raging pulse of today, sending their vibrations far off into the future.
In October 2012, The Great Apes released their first studio single ‘Dancefloor Democracy, which takes the band’s Beastie Boys no-holds-barred approach and dials it in with David Byrne-sian precision. With the release of an accompanying music video, the group plans to deliver gift baskets of sweaty dance wonders through 2013.
Savoir Adore (Full Live Set)
On “Dreamers,” the dance-laden lullaby and lead single from Savoir Adore’s new album Our Nature, Paul Hammer and Deidre Muro invite listeners into a magical dream world. Such worlds are nothing new to the fantasy pop duo, who inadvertently became a fixture of Brooklyn’s indie scene as the result of a dare. In 2007, as disheartened solo artists, they whimsically retreated out of the city to a rura l studio with two rules: “48 hours. No acoustic guitars.” They returned with The Adventures of Mr. Pumpernickel and The Girl with Animals in Her Throat (Cantora), a concept-driven EP set in a fairy tale land that narrates the tragedy of Gloria and her unrequited love. On 2009’s full length In The Wooded Forest (Cantora), they expounded on the EP’s mythical landscape. But where Savoir Adore’s previous releases have surveyed these worlds at a distance, Our Nature zooms in, putting our inner landscapes and relationships at the core of every track. In that vein, the recordings themselves are intentionally more crisp, aurally expansive and intriguing.
After recording the 2007 EP, Muro and Hammer hastily forged the grammatically faulty French moniker Savoir Adore for a MySpace page in order to share their experiments with friends. There was no turning back. The tracks caught on and made their way to Cantora Records, which released the EP as the duo began to work on a full length record. With the release of 2009’s In The Wooded Forest, the New York music press embraced Savoir Adore and set them on a path to expand their audience nationally and internationally. NME hailed Savoir Adore’s sound “musically and lyrically brave,” and Nylon praised it as “irresistibly melodic indie pop.” In 2009 and 2010, The L Magazine and The New York Post both named the band to their top bands to watch lists. Adding band members Tim McCoy (drums), Gary Atturio (bass) and Alex Foote (guitar), who took part in the Our Nature’s recording process, the band shared the stage with
MGMT, Los Campesinos, Oh Land, and Toro Y Moi.
In late 2011, Savoir Adore offered a sneak peak of Our Nature, releasing “Dreamers” as a 7” on Neon Gold Records. With the release of the full album in 2012, Savoir Adore will hit the road to promote Our Nature and invite listeners, if only for a night, into their magical realm.
