Colored Copies Are Limited / Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
On this five track EP, LA-based duo Qui demonstrate skillfully their ability to shape different elements and genres into their own brand of off-the-wall pop music. From the ballad-like acoustic guitar finger picking and pitch perfect vocal harmonies on "Treason" to the almost manic math-rock on "Dad," in a world full of copycats, it's refreshing to find a band so inimitable.
Qui was originally formed back in 2000 by Paul Christensen (drums/vocals) and Matt Cronk (guitar/vocals). From 2006 to 2013 David Yow (Scratch Acid, The Jesus Lizard) ) joined them as vocalist. The band has released three albums and several EPs and singles thus far, on labels including Three One G and Ipecac Recordings.
How to Get Ideas was produced by Deaf Nephews, mixed by Toshi Kasai, and mastered by Pete Lyman at Infrasonic Mastering. Features guest percussion and vocals by The Melvins' Dale Crover. Pressed on limited edition colored 10" vinyl of only 300 copies.
