Trumpeter Jaimie Branch, who wowed the masses with last year’s Fly or Die, is a frequent collaborator with drummer Jason Nazary (of Bear in Heaven, Little Women, Helado Negro). Together, with the addition of synthesizers into their sound, the pair are Anteloper, exploring psychedelic directions and feeling quite free. They’re set to release their album (or, er, cassette), Kudu, April 20th on the International Anthem label, so be on the lookout for that. In the meantime, take a while and bask in the odd expanse that is the first single, “Ohoneotree Suite”, after the jump while preordering the album.
Kudu, the new album from Anteloper (Jaimie Branch & Jason Nazary), is out April 20th on International Anthem.
