“The duo creates huge orchestras at home, and then plays the recordings on a thirty-year –old tape machine on stage, while Schultz hammers out the rhythms and Davis sings the haunting lyrics through a megaphone and an old telephone.”
Foreign Born’s upcoming release “Person to Person,” due June 23 on Secretly Canadian.
“In May 2008, the band signed to Secretly Canadian and secretly recorded the follow-up, Person to Person, on which the quartet’s propensity for fashioning passionate anthems really takes wing. (You also might hear influences from the Foreign Borners’ interim projects, Fool’s Gold and Luke Top.) The new album won’t be released until June, but Matt Popieluch, Lewis Pesacov, Ariel Rechtshaid, Garrett Ray and gang — the ranks will swell to eight for this show — test-drive their new batch of finically arranged, percussion-heavy folk-rock in what promises to be catharsis by orchestra.”
Fool’s Gold, a project comprising three members of Foreign Born and a love of various African pop forms: they tout love for benga (Kenya-based), juju (rooted in Nigeria), and the Congolese genre called soukous (mother of kwassa kwassa, maybe you’ve heard of it).
What is Black Iris:
With studios in New York, Los Angeles and Richmond, Virginia, Black Iris is a collective of musicians rooted in the indie music scene who have been recording compositions and original scores for commercials and new media. Comprised of producers, engineers and composers, the collective has been growing in scope and reach since its formation. Black Iris’ singles label was the next step in the collective’s natural progression – a channel through which its members could release the music they care about.
