Softwar is comprised of four essential members of the Jewelled Antler treehouse. Loren Chasse, fresh from his blistering noise work on Kyrgyz, shows us a softer but deeper side with these swirling opium-induced gems. Playing with him are the equally talented Christine Boepple (also a key part of the Jewelled Antler sound, as well as Kyrgyz and Whysp), Kerry McLaughlin (who is not only a key contributor to Franciscan Hobbies & the amazing but somewhat obscure Buried Civilizations, but also a supporting member of Jason Honea\'s Shitty Listener and previously played w/ The Skygreen Leopards) and last, but certainly not least, Franciscan Hobbyist and Shitty Listener, Geoff Koops. This foursome certainly keeps busy, but all their other works only help to increase Softwar\'s magic.
For fans of Thuja and Jewelled Antler (obviously), but also for those who love the out-there ragas of MV+EE (you’ll just crack a tooth from smiling over the opener ‘Psychic Shake” or the twisted noise-hop of Jackie-O Motherfucker, found buried deep in “Immul (the Children’s Crusade)”. Conceived in a redwood think tank, born in Golden Gate Park, Prui begins March 2007. Softwar is a thick slab of fractured voices in harmony and almost unidentifiable sounds, slipping slowly through the rabbit hole and back out the other side of the sun.
