John has a great band in-studio Wednesday morning… Tune in at 9 am for Head Like A Kite!
“Sampling sounds from Super 8 movies his parents shot in the late 70s, Head Like A Kite’s Dave Einmo melds sunny biptropic beats with lush indie soundscapes. On the debut Random Portraits of the Home Movie produced by Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Secret Machines, Iron & Wine, Red Red Meat), Dave is joined by guest appearances from members of Smoosh, Kinski, The Posies, Crooked Fingers, Preston School of Industry, Sushirobo and others.
Random Portraits of the Home Movie draws from Einmo’s fascination with the subtractive processes utilized in the architecture of trip hop and krautrock, but is executed using a far brighter, more organic palette of mellotrons, cello and guitars. Think Four Tet, The Notwist, Mouse on Mars, and The Dismemberment Plan hosting a party in Manchester during The Factory heyday.” – For more, go to Head Like A Kite.
