Deerhoof and Dal Niente Announce Collaborative LP 'Balter / Saunier' Due April 29
Since their initial meeting in 2012, Deerhoof and Dal Niente have remained fast friends. It's been announced this week, then, that the pair will release a collaborative LP entitled Balter / Saunier on April 29 via Amsterdam Records.
As of late, the duo have released the single "Cherubim," which is available on their SoundCloud. Also on the disc are works by composer Marcos Balter with arrangements from Deerhoof's own Greg Saunier.
Also, the album will feature two extended works by Balter and Saunier individually. More than 30 musicians were a part of the recording process and all production, mixing and editing notes are credited in-house.
Dal Niente, per Pitchfork, will celebrate the album at their 10th Anniversary Party in Chicago on April 30. The event will take place at Dal Niente's Studio & 3rd Floor Commons at 4045 N. Rockwell.
Take a listen to the first release by Deerhoof and Dal Niente below with a tracklisting following beneath. As it's been stated, the new tune delves into a different dimension that the pair have otherwise left unexplored.
Following a sense of depth, too, is also a sort of chaos that is built into the ensemble. It's certainly a departure for both artists.
