Like
the distant cousins of Jose Gonzales and Boards of Canada, Jed and
Lucia’s songs have a pastoral sensibility that has been warped by their
love for electronics. Their forthcoming album, “Superhuman Heart,” is a
kaleidoscope of tunes dreamed-up and recorded in the hills, parks and
woods of North Berkeley.
 
This single features two tracks from that album, plus stellar remixes from Shawn Lee
and Shlohmo. Lee turns the breezy “Apostrophe” into a catchy
head-nod-inducing bossa with just a touch of psych. While LA beat scene
fave Shlohmo bends the already-twisted folk sound of “April Showers”
into a new more angular shape, complete with other-worldly electronics,
aggo-gritty beats and plenty o'bass.

Jed and Lucia's vocal
harmonies smack of classic 1960s Cali-pop, but their acoustic guitars
and poignant lyrics are subverted by sun-drenched synths and bass lines
that add a subtle dose of urban bump and grind. Folksy songs are
transformed by acid-tripped atmospherics in a soundtrack for creatures
that crawl from the back woods into the city at nightfall.
