Joe Ziemba aka Gideon Pidgeon heeft zijn (jawel!) cassette release party in proeflokaal faas vanavond.
Artist Bio: Gideon Pidgeon is the brainchild of Joe Ziemba (formerly of Boston indie/Americana band The Big Lonesome) and Linecker Da Silva (formerly of Boston alt. rock band Tripod). The project started in 2016 in Boston as a first solo song-writing effort by Ziemba, then quickly grew into a close creative collaboration between the two artists. Thus was born the storytelling character and musical project of Gideon Pidgeon. Their self-titled debut EP released on May 18, 2017 was recorded mostly on a TASCAM Porta02 four track cassette recorder in their East Boston apartments. There are no immediate plans of touring but the duo continues develop new material across the Atlantic Ocean after Ziemba's recent relocation to Rotterdam, the Netherlands, in March of 2017. Limited edition hand pressed and numbered cassettes are available online or at shows.
Sonically, the EP recalls the post-rock and alternative days of the '90's influential to both of the main songwriters, while at the same time employing experimental and lo-fi recording techniques, lyrical imagery, and more intimate textures in the likes of Neutral Milk Hotel and Wilco. It was no accident that the release date was pushed forward to commemorate the life and passing of rock legend Chris Cornell, whose influence can be heard throughout the music, particularly in the lyrical melodies of "Down."
Joe will be playing mostly solo acoustic versions of the songs for the release show.
