SORBET is a palette-cleansing musical collaboration from producer Chris W Ryan for musicians to write tangentially from their usual process (to keep things fresh and avoid creeping burnout).
Born Purple (feat. Mícheál Keating) releases Aug 2 on Abbreviated Records. Inspired by Tim Hecker, Aphex Twin and Thom Yorke, distorted drums (from a Teenage Engineering OP-Z) swell and crush against muted piano and a simmering falsetto provided by Mícheál Keating (Bleeding Heart Pigeons).
"The imagery in the verse comes from a time I saw a cow die of milk fever - a fatal calcium deficiency she developed trying to provide milk for her newly born calf. We did all we could to save her. She was stretched out on the grass, hyperventilating, slowly dying, as the crows picked out her eyes.”
