Brooklyn anti-band Vensaire‘s newest concept album, Perdix, provides you with all of the escapism you need to get you through ‘til summer. Blending Western pop and indie-rock with a host of international folk influences, the album spans four continents, and each song’s instrumentation reflects the voyage. Like Homer’s Odyssey (the basis for the album), Perdix melds the familiar with the foreign, layering pop predilections with a sweeping indie rock determination.
A marriage of five distinct personas, the group synthesizes the guitars and vocals of Alex LaLiberte and indie darling Robert Earl Thomas (Widowspeak) with the vibrancies provided by club DJ Hunter Hawes, drummer Alex Jacobs and violinist Renata Zeiguer (Landlady).
This fusion of talent may sound like the hottest mess around, but Perdix is crafted with care. Recorded by Grammy-winner Scott Colburn (Arcade Fire, Animal Collective, Prince Rama), the album showcases his signature use of samples and electronic beats to further texturize the tracks.
Check out Vensaire at Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right on April 14.
