Pick A Piper – All Her Colours


It helps to have friends.  On latest project Pick a Piper, Caribou’s Brad Weber is joined by members of Ruby Suns, Enon/Brainiac, Born Ruffians and Braids. Beats and bass combine under guitars in what is a successful spread eagle straddling of rock and dance, capable of being played on the stereo and at a gig. All Her Colours is taken from the short and sweet debut album (it is barely longer than an EP at eight tracks long). This will be the first full length, after two EPs, released on  November 4th through City Slang, along with a slew of November European tour dates. Complex, rhythmic, with a low rumbling bass line underpinning the euphoric build, it packs a punch whilst remaining intelligent and impactful. Using a palette of instruments not usually found on the dance floor, including glockenspiels, acoustic guitar, and flute. The chorus goes a bit too sunny and breezy, almost Two Door-esque, but on the verses and builds its dark and delicious. Oh, and I love the typewriter at the start of the video. Bonus points for that one.
