archie pelago - lakeside obelisk (shop excerpts) by Experimedia published on 2014/02/07 15:27:24 +0000 *Excerpts from the album. Now available at Experimedia.net.* Archie Pelago is a production and live performance trio based in Brooklyn, NY. Formed in late 2010, the trio of Hirshi (trumpet/DJ), Kroba (sax/Ableton), and Cosmo D (cello/Ableton) combine their varied backgrounds in jazz and classical music with a common love for rhythm and the wide open possibilities of electronic music. In the studio, the three produce collectively and prominently feature their instruments, lending deeply emotive patterns and textures to their tracks. On January 27th, 2014, Archie Pelago will release their latest record, the Lakeside Obelisk EP on their own Brooklyn-based imprint, Archie Pelago Music. This follows their first two releases on their own label, the Sly Gazabo EP and the Breezy Whey / Backflight 12", which received critical acclaim in Spin, Resident Advisor, DJMag, Tsugi and XLR8R, collectively. Their single Avocado Roller was featured on Pitchfork and was included on NPR's Heavy Rotation series. Current radio support includes NPR, KCRW, KEXP, KWUR, WFMU, WBAR, WNYU, Solid Steel, Mary Anne Hobbs, and Gilles Peterson.
