Since 2001, Red Pony Clock has hovered over Gabe Saucedo’s head like his own personal storm-cloud. Can’t seem to shake it no matter how hard he tries. Occasionally, passersby have been caught under it with him. Some just catch a light drizzle, while many end up soaked to their core. In total, over 30 folks have been stuck in the psychedelic tropical disco mariachi pop downpour, usually more than 10 at a time.
Why not get an umbrella? They’ve certainly tried, but sooner or later you kinda start to miss all the fun of splishing and splashing around with your buds. Sometimes, there’s just no escaping the tempest.
2017 sees a torrent of activity like there hasn’t been in a while. This time, RPC’s been taking shelter in Gabe’s garage, recording their most experimental music yet on an 80’s Tascam reel-to-reel tape machine. The anything-goes approach is still there: expect lots of horns, strings, winds, and mallet percussion, along with a great deal of harmony vocals, vintage synths, and a bit of dubbed-out studio wildness. When you’ve been at it as long as RPC, 2 things may be expected: First, you stop giving a fuck and just do what feels right. Secondly, you get really great at what you do. Here’s hoping that’s what happened!
O, What A Tangled Web We’ve Skeeved will be released in the Spring of 2018.
