It may be April Fools' Day, but this piece of news is no joke. One of our favorite up-and-coming bands in the jam scene, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, has officially released their highly anticipated third studio album, Pleasure. The album is available for streaming below via the band's official Bandcamp page. We encourage you to support one of the hardest working bands we know by purchasing your copy today!
We recently had a chance to catch up with Greg Ormont (guitar/vocals) prior to the band's performance at AURA Music & Arts Festival. Here's what Greg had to say when asked about the new album, and how this release differs from the band's previous two studio efforts:
Greg: Oh man... listening to Pleasure gives me a lot of... pleasure (chuckles). I'm so proud of this album. I consider Pleasure to be our first "professional" studio recording in the truest sense of the word. We recorded at a phenomenal studio in Baltimore called Wright Way Studios and the experience was totally different than Psychology's recording process. With Psychology, we recorded the album ourselves, albeit with some help from our sonically inclined friends, at an impressive home studio, but we didn't have any professional assistance from start to finish. With Pleasure, we hired the owner of the studio to engineer the album, and his input and abilities eclipsed Psychology within seconds of the first recording session. Our fans can expect to hear our songs jump off the speakers with professional-grade sound quality. The album's overall flow rises and falls like the peaks and valleys of our live experience, and it's all mixed with precision.
Pigeons Playing Ping Pong brings end-of-the-world enthusiasm to their high-energy psychedelic funk. Their infectious electro-funk grooves, undeniable live energy and contagious smiles have their rabid fanbase "the Flock" growing exponentially. Based out of Baltimore, MD, this animated quartet has been scorching up the country with their explosive performances and danceable peaks... and they're loving every minute of it!
