Psapp | REWIG36 | Released: 19/11/07
Originally released in 2004, Domino is pleased to announce the reissue of Psapp’s debut album, Tiger, My Friend, on November 19th.
London based duo Psapp - composed of Galia Durant (vocals, keyboards, violin, noises) and producer extraordinaire Carim Clasmann (guitar, noises, wizardry and magic, who has previously worked with Einstürtzende Neubauten amongst others) - explore the world with a childlike curiosity. Their endearing songs are built around delicate melodies, plucked violins and found sounds - squeaky toys, samples of cats, family members and the street where they live. Lyrically exploring everyday themes of insecurity, loneliness and disappointment, this gentle and honest album has a distinctly light and airy feel. As with all of Psapp’s releases, the artwork was illustrated by cat-obsessed Galia. Tiger, My Friend is a classic electronic pop album of clever and subtle experimentation, a unique record that demands to be heard.
Since the release of Tiger, My Friend, Psapp’s music has often been heard on hit US TV shows Nip/Tuck and the OC; the duo’s track ‘Cosy In The Rocket’ was also the theme song to Grey’s Anatomy. In 2006 Domino released their second LP The Only Thing I Ever Wanted, after which Psapp toured the US, the UK and Europe enthralling audiences with their quirky and unique live show.
