Pat Jordache is back! Following his debut 2011 release Future Songs on Constellation Records, Steps springs from three years of labyrinthine sessions, building a state of the art studio, producing artists on his Banko Gotiti imprint and managing a sleazy dance club. Dark, playful, loosely honest, cynical AND care-free, the record pulls from Eno, Plastic Soul, and Shep Pettibone. For all of its careful assemblage, Steps is an uncanny, accidental party record. Out May 15th via Banko Gotiti Records on 140g vinyl and through major digital outlets.
