U.S. Girls x gorilla vs. bear takeover #1: Cosmic Range + Michael Rault
In a Poem Unlimited, the latest U.S. Girls album was not made by me, Meg Remy, all on my lonesome. It required the sensitivity and skill of more than 20 people. Over the course of the day, I will highlight some of these collaborators, directing you towards the music they each make when not graciously contributing to U.S. Girls records...
The core of In a Poem Unlimited was tracked by Toronto’s Cosmic Range with special guest Michael Rault on bass. These humans are some of the most talented musicians I have ever seen, let alone had the chance to work with. The members of Cosmic Range are as follows: Matt ‘Doc’ Dunn, Jonathan Adjemian, Mike Smith, Kieran Adams, Brandon Valdivia, Andy Haas, Isla Craig and Maximilian ‘Twig’ Turnbull. Search any one of these names on the net and you will be met with a glorious array of unique music. An unbelievable aural family tree. But to start, listen to my favorite track, ‘Love II’, off the Cosmic Range album New Latitudes released by Idée Fixe Records.
How I feel about the talent and sweetness that is Mikey Rault cannot be put into words. So just listen to his latest single, ‘Sleep With Me’. Full album coming soon via Wick (the rock imprint of Daptone!). It’s a whopper... -- Meg Remy / U.S. Girls
