John Raw by Pregnant

Album Description

Released:November 14th, 2014

"Two years ago, Daniel Trudeau received a weird, cryptic email. Someone—or something—named John Raw needed help committing suicide from the digital world. It starts like this: 'I am John Raw. I am an intern at presence. My existence is a test that will display the symbiotic experiences of lives that can co-mingle within two social experiences/lives.'

John Raw then went on to define a few terms. 'One Duo' means a person who lives physically and digitally. 'Buried in the Garden' is someone completely submerged in the Internet. 'Kid Need' is the physical world. John Raw is 'Buried in the Garden' and wants to experience 'Kid Need' and therefore requires the help of 'One Duos.'

Trudeau is a 'One Duo' and sought the assistance of other 'One Duos,' those 20 other artists, to fabricate John Raw in the physical world so that John Raw can die in the digital world.

Who is John Raw? That’s a layered question. Let’s start with something slightly simpler: Who sent that first email? A person? A spambot?" -Sacramento News & Review

"...takes the cake as the weirdest thing to ever land in my inbox." -Yvynyl

This is probably not for everybody, but... As I started listening to Pregnant's album my ears were inundated by this incredible collage of sounds.
Experimental it is, that's for sure, but for once that is not synonym with "incomprehensible-aggression-of-harsh-atonal-sounds-to-make-you-go-mmmh-genius!". If one goes past the weirdness of what pours out from the speakers, the artist's work is actually pretty coherent in its approach. From that perspective the album is indeed Jazz, as in free/experimental Jazz.
Think different, give this album a try. You might be more than pleasantly surprised!
