Description

Ecstasy and Refreshment on LP

Vinyl LP pressing. Food Pyramid's 2013 album Ecstasy And Refreshment calls to mind Sky Records' 1970s kraut-pop output filtered through 1990s DC futurism - Trans Am-esque motor pop, Game Boy console sound effects and the current Mordant Music roster, particularly Echoplekz. Disembodied voices float in and out of the mix, reminiscent of Byrne / Eno's ethnomusicology-inspired My Life in the Bush of Ghosts or the Residents' Eskimo. There is a strange post-DC vibe here, much like if Dischord Records' Black Eyes played ambient synthesizer-jams instead of Wire-y punk. The record also calls to mind Cloudland Canyon, perhaps not surprising since Kip Uhlhorn from that band mastered Ecstasy and Refreshment and is helping to release it to a wider audience. Jana Hunter from Lower Dens, Nona Invie from Dark Dark Dark, and Tony Janas and Otto Junker from Deep Earth lent their collaborative efforts as well.
