Sound & Vision – Co-Pilgrim

Luxuriant first single taken from the new Co-pilgrim LP “Moon Lagoon” that’s due for release on Farm Music in June and available to pre-order now including a rather nice Deluxe blue vinyl gatefold LP version that comes with a bonus “Co-vers” album.

The video was conceived and created by Finnish visual artist Jussi Virkkumaa:
“It could be the material left to cutting room floor from the movie ‘Burning Love’ and instructional video about how to avoid housefire when using broken videoprojector?
Because I don’t really know what Cylindrical fire-escapes means in this context other than a wish of someone not suffering from love and trying to offer a quick solution which I think would be falling in love again, I wanted to create a kind of visualizer for that. There are those firetruck- or policecar emergency lights rolling.
It’s also about of rhythm and shape, based on Hans Richter’s old dadaist/avant-garde movie named Rhythmus 21.
So maybe in one sentence: It´s an experimental visual homemade lovestory. “

Another Planet is the new album from Co-pilgrim front man Mike Gale, the album is a lo-fi home recording performed entirely solo by Mike and is available now from Battle Worldwide.

On home recording and the writing process, Mike says – “I need to keep writing and recording all year round – it keeps me sane! I write everyday but I’ve only recently started recording at home by myself. I’ve never been good at the technical side of things but I’m confident enough now to release them. I still have no real idea what I’m doing but I don’t care, it’s pure joy.”
