Lovepump United is extremely excited to announce the release of Pictureplane’s LP Dark Rift!

Pictureplane’s “Goth Star” Named Best New Music By Pitchfork!

http://pitchfork.com/reviews/tracks/11365-goth-star/

Bio: 24-year-old weirdo performance artist Travis Egedy, a.k.a. Pictureplane, obsesses over the cosmos, 90s house music, collective consciousness, and mind-altering chemicals you’ve never heard of. Much like his interests, Pictureplane’s music is strange and boundless and totally righteous

Having cut his teeth on raging tours with HEALTH, a collab with Beirut’s Zach Condon and killer remixes for Crystal Castles, HEALTH, and Thieves Like Us, Pictureplane delivers his first full-length for Lovepump, Dark Rift.

Grimy synths, broken beats, and bucolic vocals collide somewhere between early 90s house music and the gnarly soundscapes of Black Dice to forge a sound that’s wholly unique and endlessly exciting. It’s exceedlingly rare to find dance music that transcends the cold and robotic, but on Dark Rift Pictureplane does just that: churning out intricate electronic jams out of his near-legendary Denver warehouse space Rhinoceropolis. The music feels at once personal and cosmically expansive.

In Pictureplane’s own words: “once every 26,000 years our planet crosses through the elliptical plane at the center of our galaxy known as the dark rift. The songs on dark rift lyrically deal with humanity entering a new age or next phase of our existence…” The dance-floor and universe await…Pictureplane, your move!
