07.22.08: Pitchfork and Tour Dates
I Need You... is featured in Pitchfork's Most Overlooked Records of 2008. We wish the album weren't considered "overlooked" - but suppose that's better than "overrated." Along with being overlooked, KP is touring this fall. Here are the dates and cities, more details soon:
05.19.08: Entropy Reigns Single Released
The 12" vinyl features two dancefloor remixes from Ewan Pearson and Al Usher (who also operate under the name Partial Arts): the more house- and tech-driven "Pearson and Usher's Closed System Dub" and the electropop "Pearson and Usher's Second Law Dynamix." On the digital release, instrumentals of the remixes are included as well as an outstanding, innovative remix of "We Live in an Expanding Universe" from Caribou (formerly Manitoba). You can find this version of the EP (including the Caribou remix) on all digital music stores including iTunes.
