I'm very fond of Gypsophilia's brand of klezmer-infused jazz, and so I'm very excited to learn that they've got a new release. Ross from Gypsophilia sez:
"Horska" is our newest release and is many things: a 7" vinyl
single with a dub remix, a 6 song digital EP, and a brand new stop
motion animation music video.
We recorded the tracks for “Horska” at Montreal’s Hotel2Tango with
noted producer Howard Bilerman (of Arcade Fire fame). The single,
composed by guitarist Alec Frith, plays with superimposing a Jewish
hora over a ska riddim – hence the title. The 7" includes a dub
reggae-style remix as a b-side. The other tracks on the EP range
from the nostalgic-sounding “Bir Hakeim” and “Stikm,” which
showcase Matt Myer on (mostly muted) horn, to the at-times frenzied
Klezmer-influenced piece “Corentin Cariou” and the melancholy “Oh
my Oma,” featuring Gina Burgess’ plaintive violin.
As a partner to the song a stop-motion animation was created by
Halifax artist Sydney Smith and filmmaker Jason Levangie in the
style of their beautiful 2011 video "Agricola & Sarah". This time around
Gypsophilia's music is set to a vignette about a bumbling inventor
(a likeness of our bass player Adam Fine) trying to get his
mechanical flying machine off the ground.
The Gypsophilias have made the dub remix available as a free download for Boing Boing readers for a limited time
It’s been seven years since we previewed Theft: A History of Music, a comic book that explains the complicated history of music, borrowing, control and copyright, created by a dynamic duo of witty copyright law professors from Duke University as a followup to the greatest law-comic ever published: the book was due out years ago, but the untimely and tragic death of illustrator Keith Aoki delayed it — until today.
