FAUST LIVE – PillowTalk @ Faust

July 9, 2016

Sammy D, Ryan Williams 그리고 Michael Tello로 구성된 “PillowTalk”는 샌프란시스코의 Lower Haight District 에 근거룰 두었었다, 이들의 음악은 클래식 R&B, 부기 그리고 디스코, 그리고 언더그라운드 하우스&테크노 음악의 합이라 할수있다.

그들의 프로젝트는 Ryan의 주방에 있는 작은 그랜드 피아노앞에 모여있을때 시작되었다. Tello가 기타를 잡고있었으면 Sammy가 Wurlitzer를 다루고있었다. 매우 자연스럽게 아무런 멜로디의 형태와 사전의 이야기없이 자연스럽게 그들도 모르게 만들어졌다. 곧, 이들의 잼은 아이폰 앱에 녹음되어 두블럭거리에있는 스튜디오에서 재손질을 하게되었다.

수많은 장르의 경험을 뒤로 “필로우토크”는 아름답고 영감넘치는 음악을 만들고있다. 만약 그들의 동기부여가 어떤것이냐 라고 묻는다면 “D.A.G – 모든장르의 벽을 허물어라”라고 결론 지을것이다.
Beach Boys 에서 Sam Cooke까지 그리고 Freddie Hubbard에서 Harry Nilsson, 또한 Larry Heard 에서 Theo Parrish까지 이 멤버들의 머릿속에 이런한 음악들이 지배하고있다고 알게될것이다. 음악을 만드는데에 있어 이 트리오는 그들만의 그루브를 찾고자 한다.

Vision quest, Life and Death, 그리고 Wolf + Lamb에 이르는 그들의 발매곡을 꼭 들어보기를 추천한다. 이들의 아시아 투어에 올랐으며 오는 7월 파우스트에서 Sammy D가 라이브 & 디제이 셋으로 공연할 예정이다.

PillowTalk is Sammy D, Ryan Williams and Michael Tello. Based out of the famous Lower Haight District in San Francisco, PillowTalk’s music fuses classic R&B, boogie and disco with underground house and techno with an original feel. With releases out on Visionquest, Life & Death and Wolf + Lamb, 2012 is shaping up to be a huge year as they hit the road with the live band.

It all started when the…y found themselves up late, gathered around the baby grand piano in Ryan’s kitchen. Tello would be strumming on guitar and Sammy would be fiddling around on the Wurlitzer. It all just came together organically…without knowing it, melodies would form, songs would appear and before anyone realised,
Soon, these impromptu and improvised jam sessions were recorded on iPhone apps before being taken to ‘the lab” (a space about two blocks away) and from there they were transformed into alluring, charming, dance-pop ‘songs’.

With experience of, and backgrounds in, so many genres, Pillow Talk are making some seriously inspiring and beautifully original music. If you’re trying to pin down their exact sound you may have to refer to their motto of ‘D.A.G’ (destroy all genres – a term borrowed from a famed underground San Fran DJ). With influences ranging from the Beach Boys to Sam Cooke, from Freddie Hubbard to Harry Nilsson, and from Larry Heard to Theo Parrish, you can tell these guys are ruled from the right side of their brains. Having just started composing, this trio are still finding their own true groove, with their full potential yet to be explored…

A delightful debut single (‘Love Makes Parks’ on the revered Visionquest imprint) is soon to be followed by a beautiful full length on Life and Death, before following that up with another finely crafted EP for NYC house darlings, Wolf + Lamb. As well as that, a live show is in the works, soon to be debuted later this year. We look forward to following this fresh and exciting new sound and realize some of your deepest secrets are revealed “Pillow Talking”, so we are just lucky to listen in…
