BCMC (Cooper Crain & Bill Mackay)
With BCMC, Cooper Crain and Bill MacKay unite to create provocative epilogues, warm avant-garde noir, and fiery over-driven jams to recall life’s sunnier and stranger days. Crain’s organ and synths with MacKay’s guitar mix as they draw their songs from elegiac themes & spontaneous statements. This is the album release show for BCMC “Foreign Smokes” LP on Drag City.
Sam Prekop’s boundless imagination is guided by his strong sense of melody. For more than 25 years, as a solo artist or as part of The Sea and Cake, Prekop creates a singular sound inventive and warm. His distinctive vocals, guitar playing and work on modular analog synthesizers are inventive, delicate, and always bear his signature sense of melody. Comma
finds Sam Prekop for the first time working extensively with beat programming, focusing his enveloping synthesizer pieces around a newfound rhythmic pulse.
