Archie Pelago is the trio of Hirshi, Kroba, and Cosmo D and they hail from Brooklyn, NY. Archie Pelago combines their varied backgrounds in jazz and classical music with a common love for rhythm and the wide-open possibilities of electronic music. It is this sonic exploration that has led them to their most ambitious release to date: The Sly Gazabo EP.
This next highly-anticipated release paints a complex and vibrant world that explores a variety of tempos, rhythms and atmospheres, all while maintaining the uniquely Archie Pelago sound that listeners have come to admire over the past several releases. The A Side features the melodic, DJ-friendly tunes “Avocado Roller” and “In The Room,” two happy and intelligent songs that could easily be the soundtrack to your summer drive up the California coast. On the B side we find the title song, “Sly Gazabo”, a 15 minute ‘opus magnum’ that takes the listener down an unsettling sonic journey deep into the rabbit hole. The final track on the B side is “Nancy’s Library,” a fitting palette cleanser that serves as a mysteriously emotive response to the former track, the light at the end of the tunnel. The cover art was meticulously designed by Calvin Ho, of Atomic Attack! fame and printed on Black, White, and Silver ink. The Sly Gazabo EP is Archie Pelago’s most complete release to date — an instant collector’s piece for any true fan of their work.
