Big Search has announced a new album Slow Fascination to be released April 12 on Danger Mouse's 30th Century Records.
Matt Popieluch is a West Coast troubadour known for playing with Cass McCombs, Papercuts, Glasser and Sky Ferreira, but performing as Big Search, his music boasts a satisfying semblance to sounds of an earlier time. Popieluch's tasteful blend of nostalgic and inventive makes a memorable impact upon listeners, one of whom was label head, Danger Mouse.
Conceptually, Slow Fascination follows Matt Popieluch from the disorienting end of a marriage through a period of nomadic insomnia to a landing point of existential mutiny. Each song vents an emotional process palpably human, with beautifully frenetic musicianship. Though best known as a talented twelve-string guitarist, Popieluch employed harpsichord, synthesizer and piano on the new album, cultivating an eclectic wealth of sonic experiences. Guest vocalists including The Shins' James Mercer, Grizzly Bear's Ed Droste and Kacey Johansing further intensify the collection.
