is a collaboration between Papi Fimbres (Paper/Upper/Cuts, Sávila, Dreckig, Máscaras, WetFruit) and Leb Borgerson (QuietCountries, Alan Singley and Pants Machine, Laserhawk).
The two Portland, Oregon music scene veterans are bandmates in the highly acclaimed Orquestra Pacifico Tropical, and old friends.
One day Papi came over to Leb’s home studio and the two spent the day recording improvised jams and experimenting with diferent instrumentation. A few years later, during a global pandemic, Leb finished the recordings, editing the original tracks and adding new instrumentation.
The result is a potent and expansive mix of prog, psych, noise, and
sci-fi weirdness, featuring searing guitar solos and explosive drumming, along with moody synth, koto and flute interludes.
