Lisa Papineau - Blood Noise - Cassette
Lisa Papineau has a voice that may already be familiar to one's ears without realizing her name. She is prominently featured on songs by AIR, M83, Crooked Cowboy, Jun Miyake, and Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, as well as with Tyler Bates on the Watchmen film score. Additionally, Lisa is one half of Big Sir with Juan Alderete and ME&LP with Matt Embree, both of whom make guest appearances on Blood Noise, her third solo album. These nine songs create their own microscopic world that runs a vein through each one's respective atmosphere, proving that Lisa is more than just a vocalist—her whole presence assumes the role of the instrument. That presence and perseverance brought this album to fruition as she battled serious health issues over the course of its recording, resulting in a vulnerable, raw, and emotionally fearless collection of songs comprised of first takes. Lisa has been one of our favorite voices in music since she was a member of Pet in the mid-'90s and has since become one of our favorite people. We are extremely excited and honored to have a small part in getting this album out to the world by releasing a limited edition, professionally-duplicated cassette with a full-color insert and yellow-tinted case. Includes download code. “…Exceptionally fearless. Tape scene ambience, confident female vocals, grinding noise and pop art sensibilities… Sounds and feels vintage, futurist, and completely authentic. … This absolutely hooked me from the first second and carried me until the last.” —guide me little tape Featured on Norelco Mori #29.
