INFO: Mocky will release his new album "Saskamodie" on Crammed Discs on March 23rd 2009. The album was co-produced by Renaud Letang in Paris' famed Ferber Studios (Nina Simone Serge Gainsbourg and others have recorded there). This gives the album a unique quality that blends a classic feel with a modern sound. Mocky signed the album with the legendary Crammed Discs from Belgium (Bebel Gilberto, Konono Number 1, Balkan Beatbox ). On "Saskamodie" Mocky is listed as playing drums, bass, rhodes, piano, guitar, percussion, bells, recorder, vocals, whistle, organ and toys as well as writing string arrangements. Taylor Savvy, Gonzales, Jamie Lidell & Feist contribute additional instrumental and backing vocal performances that make this record sound more like a live performance than a studio creation.
