Video Premiere: Pick A Piper - "Cinders & Dust"

Music  |  Video

Toronto-based musician Brad Weber has already enjoyed a rich musical career as the percussionist for Caribou, but his side project Pick A Piper has gained its own level of notoriety in recent years.

As Pick A Piper’s sound evolved from an acoustic emphasis to one that employs electronic sounds and synthy undertones, it has continued to build upon the organic quality that Weber’s music has always seemed to maintain.

The album doesn’t just use samples and synthesizers — you’ll hear a variety of instruments including flute and acoustic guitar, forcing listeners to reevaluate what they expect from dance music.

Watch the video for Pick A Piper’s song “Cinders & Dust” from their eponymous album, out now via Mint Records.
