Laser Background with Celestial Shore, Zula, Banned Books

Laser Background is a project about childhood. Every aspect of our adult lives is transformed by what we absorb during the sponge of our youth. And it is this precise molten window, still nestled & thriving within our brainscapes, that Philadelphia’s Andy Molholt delves into with Laser Background’s debut LP Super Future Montage.
“I wanted to create a psychedelic action/adventure LP,” says Molholt. “I look at Super Future Montage as a sort of mission statement, not just for Laser Background, but for life in general. I look at this album as my life’s work.”
Repetitive themes run rampant throughout the record, drawing parallels between birth, death, sleeping, waking, the monotony of the mundane & the peculiarity of the mystical. Molholt neatly wraps this colossal array into a confectionary web of confusion ripe for the tasting. “It’s a reminder of sorts, that existence is filled with beginnings & endings,” Molholt offers. “The human condition is basically one big lost & found. Once you really embrace the idea that security of any kind is an illusion, you can start to move forward & break new ground.”
Produced by Michael Johnson (Ape School, Lilys, Holopaw) & engineered by Michael Trillions (Norwegian Arms, Grandchildren), Super Future Montage pushes Laser Background into unexplored sonic territory, hijacking expectations & forcing the listener to come along for the ride. Echoing influences like Of Montreal’s Coquelicot & Brian Eno’s Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy), Molholt forges a sound both reminiscent & all his own, a post psychedelic avant-pop vacation. If past, present & future are the fruits of time, here Molholt has created his orchard. And in this warped universe, where time no longer matters, the flowers are constantly in bloom.

The whispers about Celestial Shore’s debut full-length, 10x, began with the release of the balmy I’m-so-done-with-you song “Valerie” on Stereogum earlier this year. Sound traveled: the Brooklyn trio joined Hometapes and 10x will be released September 3rd in partnership with Local Singles (the new label begun by Brad Oberhofer). In nine songs, Celestial Shore deconstructs city life, the history of pop music, and their own jazz educations into something both heartbreakingly raw and mystically timeless. In between the lines, the band exalts the vibrant scene they call home: the album was mixed by Deerhoof’s Greg Saunier, includes Empress Of’s Lorely Rodriguez on vocals, and features cover art by Prince Rama.

“Twin Loss” is a tense yet tempered psych pop song by Brooklyn’s Zula, a band fronted by cousins Henry and Nate Terepka. It deals with a rather dark and emotionally draining theme: twin loss, the feeling of incompleteness and grief someone experiences when their twin dies at birth. The song’s narrator is “longing to transcend life and merge with one’s true counterpart,” the band says. “Twin Loss” will appear on Zula’s first full-length album, out in October via Inflated Records. In the mean time, the band have released three-track Twin Loss EP, which you can stream in its entirety below. – Stereogum
Zula is currently working on a debut LP, set to be released this summer.
