Published Jan 08, 2016Toronto musician Jeff Pinto (formerly of Hands & Teeth) has been making music under the moniker Gursky, and he's set to unveil the results of last winter's hard work.
He transformed a 100-year-old farmhouse in Kingston, ON, into a studio, using an old piano, vintage synthesizers and a more modern drum machine and sampler to create an album's worth of songs that explore "the effects of the machines on us as we increasingly use them to help us connect."
Once back in the big city, a record was pulled together with the help of producer Laurence Currie and the result is a collection aptly titled Me & My Machines. Exclaim! is pleased to premiere the title track from the album, which can be heard right now.
Pinto and his live band (featuring members of Hands & Teeth, Hobo Lord and Ada Dahli & the Pallbearers) will recreate compositions from the project live on January 19 at the Horseshoe Tavern. Until then, enjoy the eclectic, layered experimentation of "Me & My Machines" in the player below.
