what makes us glow

state 51 conspiracy


Released: 11th Nov 2013


lp + cd

Released: 11th Nov 2013


a vast hypercolour psychedelic whirl of an album, with intricate orchestration, layered vocals & a pioneering spirit.

‘what makes us glow’ is less electronic than the duo’s previous releases; with more soundscapes & more raw sounds. psapp still relish in combining unusual musical elements – this record includes galia’s snores, boxes of writhing mealworms, snapped dragonflies & the groans of milk-laden cows – alongside the more standard instruments: piano, violin, oud, organs. the album is more organic & fluid, weaving in lurching song monsters orchestrated with home built instruments (including their boneaphone, a marimba made from bones), wistful pop in wolf’s clothing & swampy drones of recorded ambience. these songs thrum & buzz, they glow.
