pick a piper

Being Caribou’s live percussionist (which is a truly spectacular and sinewy order) requires real chops. But Brad Weber is totally up to the task, as I got to witness a number of times a few years back. Weber has his own beautiful musical project called Pick A Piper.

Featuring guest vocals from members of rad bands Born Ruffians, Braids, Enon and more, Pick A Piper’s self-titled album on Mint Records, has strains of Caribou DNA while uniquely investigating it’s own dreamy landscape.

Less a psychedelic excursion and more of a romantic expression, Pick A Piper  sounds like it’d feel to walk into a forest where it’s raining candy. It’s not to say it’s saccharine or overly sweet or doesn’t have  the polyrhythmic or melodic punch we’d expect from a member of Caribou, but rather to say that it’s completely enchanting, surprising, colorful and weird.
