We’re delighted to announce that, on the occasion of its 20th anniversary, for the first time since its original 1999 release, Piano Magic’s ‘Low Birth Weight’ album will be available again on vinyl this coming September. The record’s original label, Rocketgirl, will re-issue the release, beautifully redesigned, with new sleeve notes by Glen Johnson of the band and previously unseen pictures from Simo Bogdanovic’s original photo session.
Greatly inspired by the experimental rock band, Disco Inferno and late 80’s/early 90’s “dreampop,” ‘Low Birth Weight,’ was recorded between Nottingham and London by a revolving cast of characters that included Pete Astor (The Loft/The Weather Prophets), Simon Rivers (The Bitter Springs) and minimalist electronic duo, Isan.
Lyrical, emotional, playful, ‘Low Birth Weight,’ serves as a fascinating bridge between late 90’s dream pop and experimental electronic music. Out 13th September 2019.
