Caitlin Brothers’ debut solo album, ppoacher ppoacher & the Concrete Dragonfly, takes the form of a sonic fairytale bathed in light and shadow. When Brothers set out to record the album with her label, Matron Records, she knew that a run-of-the-mill recording studio wouldn’t cut it. Instead, she sought out the Dwan Light Sanctuary in Las Vegas, New Mexico to create a spellbinding live recording. The venue’s floor-to-ceiling prisms perfectly matched the soundscape Brothers conjures across 7 intimate tracks. The album’s ethereal acoustics will find their echo in form & concept’s atrium at a special album release concert for ppoacher ppoacher & the Concrete Dragonfly on Friday, July 14, 6-9 pm. The show features Brothers, who performs under the moniker ppoacher ppoacher, along with Seal Eggs and Leticia Gonzales.
“Just like Caitlin’s work, the show will be a many-layered sensory experience,” says Eliza Lutz, founder of Matron Records. “We’ve created a hidden trail that concertgoers can follow through the gallery, with a treasure at the end.” To capture the recording process, Matron Records teamed up with local filmmakers Charles-Austin Ross and Amy West (of Brownhouse and Wombox Productions, respectively). The result is a “secret online show,” which will be released alongside the album and available only to those who can find a password hidden in form & concept.
Brothers is a SFUAD graduate and all-around accomplished musician with such eclectic projects under her belt as Storming the Beaches with Logos In Hand, Loretta’s Got A Stargun and Bedlambs. As both a multi-instrumentalist and accomplished vocalist, Brothers’ highly distinct songwriting style is marked by congenial contrasts: passionate & playful, calculated & relaxed, approachable & quirky. Through this push-and-pull of dynamic delights, ppoacher ppoacher highlights Brother’s multifarious talents through well-crafted and intimate songs on harp and banjo that make the listener cry and laugh in equal measure. ppoacher ppoacher & the Concrete Dragonfly showcases her heartfelt and eclectic style.
ppoacher ppoacher & the Concrete Dragonfly was recorded live by Dave Badstubner, James Lutz, Nicholas Quintero and Taressa Martinez, mixed by Dave Badstubner and mastered by Will Dyar of Hills Audio in Santa Fe, NM. Album art, illustration and design by Eliza Lutz. The album release show at form & concept features performances from ppoacher ppoacher, Seal Eggs (vocal and harp loops creating slowly unfolding ambient textures, from Colorado Springs, CO) and Leticia Gonzales (local musician and poet performing old New Mexican and Balkan folk songs and original poetry). form & concept will ask for a $5 donation at the door in support of Matron Records and the featured performers.
