Pleated Shorts

Blanketship:  Pleated Shorts

Label: Gigante Sound    
Released in: USA    

"Once again we are welcomed to the magical world of Jared Blum's Blanketship. Pleated Shorts is a compilation style, 20 track, 29 min kaleidoscope collage of AM classics and easy listening box sets, broken psychedelia, quasi- prog orchestral library rock, French soundtrack funk, odd worldy wonders, sweaty electronics and other dirty thrift store bin magic.

Like a compilation or mix tape, each song in turn is recognizably different but all with a hazy focus of catchy warped melodies and slender grooves. A record where out of tune strings, clunky click bass, mishandled harpsichords, fragmented vocals, melted Mellotrons, crumpled Krautrock, fumbling flutes are all laid together to create a clamoring melange of abstract pop rock. The line between which sounds were sampled and which were played by Blum is mysteriously woven into a sonic concoction of total bizarre."-Gigante Sound
