Pillowfight!

Posted by on Fri, Jan 11, 2013 at 1:22 PM

I've been waiting forever (and missed two Emily Wells concerts in the last year for no good reason) but it's finally here: Pillowfight is the collusion of producer and gifted multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Emily Wells, Dan the Automator (Deltron, Dr. Octagon, Handsome Boy Modeling School, Gorillaz, Cornershop), and artist David Choe. Rumors of their work together hit the internets early last year with a short video in Choe's own inimitable "dirty style."

The full self-titled album is set to be released on the 22nd of this month on Bulk Recordings/EMI. Given Wells' own body of work, from folk songstress to audaciously good violin looping rapper, and Dan the Automator's supernatural DJ skills, his patient, perfect selection of artists to produce, and the fact that he's also a classically trained violinist, this album has monumental potential.

Lovage is my favorite Dan the Automator project, with Mike Patton.

@1 I hadn't even heard of that one, but I do love Dan The Automator's Nathaniel Merriweather character. His skits are the only one's on albums I don't mind. I started listening to Dan around the Handsome Boy Modeling School days, so those jams are my favorites. Thanks for hippin' me to that.

Definitely check out Lovage. "Music to Make Love to Your Old Lady By" is awesome from beginning to end.
