Jad Fair + Hifiklub + kptmichigan – ‘Don’t Give Up’
65cx_JNR191coverart--1American singer & guitarist Jad Fair, French free-rock open quartet Hifiklub, and Anglo-German producer and musician Michael Beckett (aka kptmichigan) first came together for their Bird House EP, released in 2012 via Joyful Noise Recordings. Eager to continue their reflections and sound exchange, the three parties meet again in a new framework, this time for a longer format constituting their first album Don’t Give Up. Don’t Give Up has been developed in a particular way: in one weekend, Hifiklub composed and recorded a series of 18 musical pieces, which were then completed remotely by Jad Fair, over the Internet in just a few hours. The crude set was subsequently deconstructed and reassembled by kptmichigan, resulting in the eight tracks of weird pop found on Don’t Give Up.
