You won't have heard anything quite like Pink Dolphins out in June on International Anthem. Thick with a varnish of electronics and moving in a restless exploratory fashion 'One Living Genus' comes at the end of the record, a saga of a track all in itself driven by a baggy futuristic lopside momentum that takes us on a thrilling ride. Produced by Tortoise guitarist Jeff Parker the album is the project of trumpeter Jaimie Branch and drummer Jason Nazary. Parker gives a few insights as to how the record was made: “The source material that was initially sent to me was many, many hours of improvised sessions that needed to be sifted through. It was overwhelming! So eventually Anteloper went back in the lab and edited the source material down into smaller chunks, and we went from there. It took me a long time to find a groove with it… I spent many months experimenting with different techniques and ideas. I would send them tracks, they would add to it and send it back. It was definitely a challenging way to make a record. I learned a lot. It was worth it!” Seriously awesome sounds, check out the track above.
