Laurel Halo, Julia Holter, Lucrecia Dalt, Rashad Becker and more record "telepathic" collaboration for Jaar's Other People

Remember when The Postal Service was really big and everyone was all aflutter because they wrote songs by sending each other recordings through the mail? It was, like, so romantic and old school and quirky/arty. People like that shit. Well, now it’s 2015, and sending stuff through your friendly mail carrier is sooooo over. It’s been done. Plus, if you’re a newly formed supergroup of experimental artists, you just gotta think up something weirder, something more forward-/beyond-thinking, something more… occult.

And so, now, to fill the void in our lives left by not having enough gimmicky collaboration stories, there comes Terepa. Except for Terepa’s story isn’t really gimmicky; it’s just freakin’ awesome. This thing consists of Laurel Halo, Julia Holter, artist and mastering engineer Rashad Becker, Lucrecia Dalt, sound wizard NHK’Koyxen, violinist Grégoire Simon, and Charlotte Collin, all of whom recorded two sessions in L.A., Berlin, Osaka, and Paris that would make up the compositions on their forthcoming white vinyl EP on Nicolas Jaar’s label Other People. As part of the collaboration, they all began recording simultaneously for 20 minutes without communicating with each other “outside of their own telepathic capacities.” The resulting recordings were then layered and mixed into two compositions — in the same way they created the artwork, which you’ll find printed right onto the surface of the EP.

The vinyl/digital release will be available on July 13.
