ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Peptides sheepishly release STEREO STEREO – their sophomore album. Ever-resistant to classification, The Peptides take a slight detour from the misty driving-at-dusk atmosphere of I'M A SPY (released in 2007): STEREO STEREO offers up an eclectic batch of original tunes ranging from toe-tapping ditties to retro boppers. Pushing the boundaries of conventional pop, The Peptides experiment with format – as in the waltzy one-man choir of 'Wild Boy' – and even pay hommage to rhythmic eras gone by with an anti-war go-go tryptic. In full form are those signature lush vocal arrangements (the dreamy pairing of his and her voices has been described by some as "sheer heaven"). As for pangful storytelling, The Peptides' lyrics return as restless tourguides through life's endless maze of love, politics, and loss.

Like Beck’s "Odelay", The Peptides have released a masterful, genre-bending sophomore album that throws quirk-folk, noir-pop, party grooves, and bubblegum playfulness into a boiling pot of sonic madness. Canadian songwriter Claude Marquis is at the helm, navigating us through eclectic waters steeped in the sounds of classic records from the past 5 decades. He eventually cascades down a violent waterfall where every conflicting convention collides, but somehow, in the end, manages to steer the boat to safety. It is an exhilarating ride and The Peptides’ lush vocal harmonies, reminiscent of The Beach Boys, Panda Bear, or Kings of Convenience, will lull you back on board time and time again to be tossed about in the currents of clashing influence.
