Kazoo! #144: GREGORY PEPPER & HIS PROBLEMS (album release) / CARS & TRAINS – Aug 23rd @ eBar

Kazoo! #144
A native of Guelph, Ontario, Gregory Pepper has established himself as an underground pop dignitary, specializing in lush harmonies and quirky, complex tunes of woe. Following a brief foray into hip-pop as Common Grackle, Pepper has returned to the singer/songwriter fold, melding buoyant melodies with morose narratives, all executed with raw, enthusiastic abandon. His forthcoming record, “Escape From Crystal Skull Mountain”, is scheduled for release in August 2012, via Fake Four Inc. It promises to be an homage to classic American pop music, overflowing with brass, strings, and a staggering amount of vocal overdubs.

The albums of Portland, Oregon based multi-instrumentalist cars & trains (Tom Filepp) consist of handfuls of microscopic crafted worlds, shaped with tiny precision. Layers of decaying feedback, sparse glockenspiel and tape samples weave a dark and dense tapestry of sound while deep brooding vocals sit atop songs with deceptive timing, subtle electronic stutters, and thunderous and organic drumming. Banjo driven four to the floor stompers yield to velvety acoustic guitar and spacious instrumentals laden with sampled americana.

+ DJ DANDY (Geordie Gordon from The Magic) before, between and after.
