The alliance of Grenier’s and Archie Pelago’s styles effectively transcends the arbitrary conjunction of monikers, their sound signatures echoing one another with a very natural feeling while retaining their sovereignty.
Archie Pelago is a production and live performance trio based in Brooklyn, NY. Formed in late 2010, the trio of Hirshi (trumpet/DJ), Cosmo D (cello/Ableton) and Kroba (sax/Ableton) combine their varied backgrounds in jazz and classical music with a common love for rhythm and the wide-open possibilities of electronic music.
Archie Pelago: Lakeside Obelisk
This EP does what Archie Pelago have always done so well: by juxtaposing and collaging such disparate musical tropes, it creates something much more than a mere portmanteau of genera for fickle novelty, but an entirely new mode of approaching the boundaries we impose on music.
