Ceschi Ramos / Gregory Pepper/ Midwife/ Damn Selene/ CFX Project
March 3, 2020 @ 6:30 pm
Ceschi’s music lives in some liminal space between left field hip hop, folk punk and indie rock, and has earned him a cult following within the indie rap and DIY punk communities. Sans Soleil is the immediate follow-up to Ceschi’s 2019 fan-favorite album Sad, Fat Luck, which has received praise and nods from Anthony Fantano of The Needle Drop, Hip Hop DX, Pop Matters, Northern Transmissions, VEVO, Talkhouse, Myke C Town of Dead End Hip Hop and more. As Hip Hop DX puts Ceschi’s sound, “his emotions pour through every syllable.” Sans Soleil is a politically savvy record with an endless palette of samples and top-tier collaborators including Yoni of WHY?, P.O.S., Open Mike Eagle, Onry Ozzborn, Squalloscope, and Ceschi’s longtime collaborator and producer Factor Chandelier. Available on vinyl, limited edition picture disk vinyl, CD, and cassette, this sequel album is bound to solidify Ceschi’s standing as a force to be reckoned with in independent music.
Canada’s elder statesman of self-deprecating basement pop returns with his sixth full-length album as Gregory Pepper & His Problems, I Know Now Why You Cry. His succinct and catchy song craft spans a myriad of genres, reminicent of They Might Be Giants, Jon Brion, and early Weezer. As a long standing member of the Fake Four Inc roster, he’s collaborated with Ceschi, Factor, Awol One, and Kirby Dominant. He’ll be performing solo for this string of engagements, allowing his ear worm melodies and sardonic raps to be on full display.
