AEROPLANE PAGEANT COLLABORATES W/ 2-TIME GRAMMY WINNER “BASSY” BOB BROCKMAN
3rd Full-length Album FLOAT ABOVE THE YARD set for September 20th self-release:
New York’s Hyperrealistic Pop Band Releases “Help Me Shoot This Apple Off My Head” With Accompanying Video
Produced/mixed by 2-Time Grammy Winner “Bassy” Bob Brockman (Notorious B.I.G, Bob Dylan, Herbie Hancock, Debbie Gibson) FLOAT ABOVE THE YARD expands upon Aeroplane Pageant’s distinct aesthetic vision of blurring the line between what’s real and what’s fake, while combining poetic-minded content with the latest experimental pop production techniques. “We live in an age of misinformation and misrepresentation, where things are presented in a way that’s often more than real. With this record we really wanted to capture that absurd yet playful whimsy of these illusory and hyperrealistic times,” emphasizes singer/songwriter Brian Kelly.
Aeroplane Pageant now celebrates the 2011 US release of its newest single, “Help Me Shoot This Apple off My Head,” by making it available for free to download on the band’s website. Go to: www.aeroplanepageant.com
The band will also play NYC”s MERCURY LOUNGE on August 12th previewing new material and fan favorites.
Previously 2009 single “Stars Still Pretty” was AOL Spinner’s Top Ten Download of 2009, Magnet Music’s Video of Day 2009, which also premiered on Much Music and MTVU. The band was recognized as Newsday’s Top Ten Artist of 2009, and was also featured on NBC New York and CNN.
Whether joining the stage with artists ranging from Vampire Weekend, Psychedelic Furs, Tokyo Police Club, The Antlers, to Hold Steady, Dr. Dog, and White Rabbits, or collaborating with such artists as American writer Rick Moody (author of Ice Storm), or producer Shane Stoneback (Jim Jarmusch, Sleigh Bells, Cults, Fucked Up), both of whom are currently remixing songs from upcoming LP, Aeroplane Pageant has become an integral addition to the New York art pop scene—making art for art’s sake, and borrowing from all artistic mediums—by pooling together sounds both big and small, organic and electronic, insular and celebratory, bright and dark, abstract and material, noisy and melodic, and repetitious and formless—thus creating a sound and vision that’s entirely their own, which only fully materializes with their unhinged cerebral live show.
Furthermore, three additional singles, videos, and remixes will be released for this album, “Brief Confessions of a Young Bear,” “Cities as a Dream” and “Big Little Wolfs.”
