"Originally released on tape and now out on sweet vinyl. Featuring 16 multi-layered and deeply personal tracks.
If you could imagine what it would sound like if Young Marble Giants recorded in Black Ark under the direction of Brain Wilson in his sandbox era, you may be able
to visualize the music of Ela Orleans without actually hearing it. NEO PI-R is sparse, but filled with both whimsy and deep brooding symbology.
This is post-punk from the Gaslamp Era.
Ela Orleans manages to utilize some of the more standard trappings of experimental music, toy piano sounds, dub and phase techniques and dead pan vocals.
Track titles exist, but it is best to just let this album flow from song to song… and get lost in its delirium dream.”
This record is heartbreakingly beautiful. Lo-fi, Brechtian pop songs filtered through a haze of shoegaze, analogue experimentalism and lo-fi noise. Ela Orleans on Clan Destine Records. The vinyl is a gorgeous piece of work too, amazing cover, and it sounds fantastic.
