More Info

"New studio album on the LPDots own label Terminal Kaleidoscope. Though it may be the case that future musicologists will have to assign Kerschel numbers to LPD releases just to keep track, the vast output that has recently reigned down hath shewn a group of musicians evolving even beyond previously well evolved states, possibly culminating in Poppy Variations. From the opening clogging cadence and cicada drone of Krussoe, the air begins to smell something like an Asylum on the eve of a Crushed Velvet Apocalypse. Poppy Variations isn't aping old LPD material (though it samples and processes it in the background). PV has, rather, captured those warm, heady, sweetly melodic tones of the old guard. Personal Monster and The Equaliser further evoke the thudding undercurrents and whimsy of Ancestral Dots. Crisp, walking bass stabs; percolating sequences; saxes and flutes conversing with the electronics, Edward's voice quietly projecting, as from an interstellar transmission." [press release]
