NOBODY & THE MYSTIC CHORDS fo MEMORY
I thought they were one group but I am slowly realizing that Nobody & Mystic Chords of Memory is a SUPERGROUP, collaborative effort between Nobody (Elvin Estella) and Mystic Chords of Memory (Chris Gunst and Jen Cohen). Building off of successful guest appearances on each other's past releases, the trio began collaborating on the latest project, Tree Colored See, in the spring of 2004. After a year-plus of road trips and mail-order production efforts, the result is a perfectly crafted blend of psychedelic hip-hop and sunshine folk-rock. Coming across like a very lo-key, folky Animal Collective with laid back grooves that will keep pace and also space out, the cosmic effects, thumping beats and 45-crackles result in a cool new sound for soaking up the sun or a long drive.
It will be available to you in May on Mush records in the states and on Rough Trade Records in Europe. There will also be a 12" EP for 'Broaden a New Sound' with a Dntel remix and remakes by Devendra Banhart and the Long Lost. No info yet on pre-orders.
