Perhaps Contraption’s second LP is called “Business”.
Oozed out obsessively over the past 5 years,
Business is some sort of psychedelic avant-folk excursion; melding art pop, mathematic rock expulsions & entwined woodwind soundscapes.
The album is comprised of two distinct sections.
Jammed with desperate soliloquies & ecological / mortal meme-fucks, Business flinches at the mental clutter we are bombarded with incessantly.
All delivered with Perhaps Contraption’s quintessential Dada-infused English eccentricity.
We truly hope your Ossicles are pleased.
