The Gang Age
It's May in Philadelphia and already the humid sweat drips on dirty basement tile floors and orange Broad Street subway lines rumble the snares, 20Hz if you dare. In this heat, the highest virtue is exhaled chromatic air lit with the dust of Fiona Apple and Cat Power streaming from below the pavement. This is The Gang Age.
Linus In The Sapphire
Linus in the Sapphire is a songwriting merger between pianist Laura Fisher and guitarist Mike Britt. Separately, the pair has written and recorded hundreds of dream pop, trip hop, progressive rock, pop, alternative, shoe-gaze, acoustic industrial, neo-classical, and modal improvisational pieces. In late 2012, they surprised their friends and fans by coming together to compose a double L.P., exploring musical pathways of mutual interest in a cohesive and refreshing way. After scattered NYC performances with the Microkorg and Rm1x drum machine, the duo has been joined by engineers / composers / instructors Dion Paci (drums) and Zach LoPresti (bass) who continue to expand and build upon the Linus songs with fresh, inventive, and complex mastery.
