New LOOPOOL album out now:
"Alive. Living. Live." on Ilse Records
For the past thirteen years LOOPOOl has created over forty records, yet live shows have been sparse, typically around once a year. "Alive. Living. Live." recorded at three different shows in Seattle and Los Angeles during 2010/2011captures the variety of styles that LOOPOOL cycles through. The record features four songs spanning over seventy minutes and contains covers of Coil's "Tattooed Man" and Gitane Demone's "Somewhere" with Gitane herself (ex-Christian Death / Demonix) on backup vocals. The album also features vocalizations from Butoh dancer Vanessa Skantze of the group Danse Perdue. As well as covers the albums has two originals, the thirty five minute epic "the Pleasure of Cleaning Up" an amalgamation of traditional Sufi and Japanese music, and "Notation Improvisations 3.6" a performance given for the release of the Notations Improvisations III album made with a player piano style music box. Throughout LOOPOOL's history change has been paramount and rarely has genre been ascribed to, with this release it all comes to a head with a form of dark cabaret/ambient that ties the past thirteen years of work together in a package that perhaps makes more sense than a random sampling of his albums. While it is impossible to pinpoint the essence of LOOPOOL's music this release gives an accurate picture of his influences and love of textural structures that balance on the edge of the disquieting.
