Passenger Peru: Break my neck (Single, 2015)

Break My Neck, the second song from their forthcoming sophomore record, Light Places, set to release on February 24th.  is a pensive and dreamy cut with lead singer Justin Stivers calmly cooing over waves of anxious guitar strums/plucks and swirling keys. It seems to me like Stivers is reflecting on our fleeting existence– perhaps not? No matter the underlying subject matter, it’s hard to not get caught up in the imagery of these lines — one deep breath, sad but true/one deep breath, leads to you/break my neck, break my neck to/break my neck to see the stars, the stars explode above…

Passenger Peru: Passenger Peru (Fleeting Youth Records, 2014)

Passenger Peru- Passenger Peru cover art

Passenger Peru son un dúo de Brooklyn especializados en una suerte de  Freak-Folk algo distorsionado, impresiones electrónicas, tropicalia y, por qué no decirlo, cierta bizarría instrumental. Ecos de Neutral Milk Hotel, Yo la Tengo o incluso los primitivos Animal Collective fluyen por la música de Justin Stivers y Justin Gonzales.

Passenger Peru is the brain child of Justin Stivers (bassist on The Antlers album “Hospice”, Pet Ghost Project) who combines his talents with virtuoso multi-instrumentalist Justin Gonzales to bring you a raw mix of cosmic shape-shifting tunes teetering on the brink of danceability. Their debut self-titled album was written and recorded over the course of a year in Brooklyn basements and tranquil locations in the foothills of the Alaskan wilderness. The album finds the Brooklyn duo blending the tender and vulnerable song writing of Yo La Tengo with the aural colorings and production of Brian Wilson and the tribal noise freak-outs of early Animal Collective” (Press)

TJB Covers Game: Passenger Peru-More than this (Roxy Music Cover, 2014)

Passenger Peru es una One-Man-Band especializada en ecos electrónicos, tropicalia y, por qué no decirlo, cierta bizarría instrumental. Como prueba, aquí tienes el More than This de Roxy Music manipulado hasta extremos que el mismo Ferry igual no toleraría…

“More Than This” is British art rock band Roxy Music‘s 1982 hit single that Justin Gonzales has always been fond of. In this new cover from Passenger Peru, Gonzales wanted to “bring out the ambient qualities of the song and blow it out of proportion” and masterminded a warm, slow crawling trip through swirls of galactic noise, layered shoegaze vocals, and clusters of experimental sounds that float in a different universe than the original ” (Press)
