BIGCOLOUR – “Lampshade Talker”

Listen to a new track and big 50’s bopper “Lampshade Talker” from Chicago lo-fi kids BIGCOLOUR, that’ll be making an appearance on their debut album. No date or title on the album yet, but keep an eye out as it’ll hopefully be out by the end of the year.

BIGCOLOUR – “Somnambulist Bop” [VIDEO]

Here’s the newest tune and video from Chicago retro-boppers BIGCOLOUR, “Somnambulist Bop.” The amazingly shot and hazy video was directed by Kayla Kane, who also did the video for Centuries of Summer’s standout “Red Silk Bow.”  BIGCOLOUR said on their Tumblr that this will be on their forthcoming release, which I believe will be their debut album.  The first taste of their debut, “playing puzzles,” is now up on their Bandcamp for free.

Chicago minimalist dream-poppers BIGCOLOUR are asking for a little bit of help. They have a new album coming out sometime in late March/early April, and they want to give it an appropriate pressing on vinyl. And in order to do that, they need a good amount of funding. So they have put together a small “kickstarter” in which they have their first single from the new album, “playing puzzles,” available for download for $5 on BandCamp, and for every 10th person that buys the single will get their new LP for free! This is the least any fan of them can do, especially since their two 2010 EPs, Meshes of the Laughternoon and the fantastic Centuries of Summer, were released for free.  And it’ll feel really good to be a part of an amazing album, which judging by “playing puzzles,” will a great beach-kicking, foot-stomping, dream-weaving, “ohh la la”-filled pop adventure.

BIGCOLOUR is the one-man electro-psych project of Chicagoan Brian Brissart. I stumbled upon Brissart’s project through his good friends, Glitter Bones, as they collaborate and play shows all the time.  BIGCOLOUR’s new EP, Meshes of the Laughternoon, is nothing but hazy summer music pushing the “chillwave” movement one big step farther.  The EP isn’t typical 80s-wave nostalgia though, its more like if Toro Y Moi and Real Estate raised a polite Midwestern kid.  Tracks like opener “stork”, tropical “booboo nest”, and drone-y “power stranger” get freakishly expansive for tracks on any EP, and will have you coming back for weeks.  I can’t seem to find any physical release information, but you can find the lyrics to all these songs from his BandCamp.
