Singer, guitarist, and texturalist Sam Prekop has beguiled critics for years, from his days with Shrimp Boat to more recent times with the Sea & Cake. His new album The Republic is his latest synthesizer work, following 2010’s Old Punch Card, and showcases Prekop’s talent for creating expressive music through mechanical patterns, repetitions, and chance. Prekop’s innate gifts of melodic turns of phrase that have made him a revered songwriter are transferred into new forms in his synthesizer work, aided by the unpredictable melodic capabilities of analog sequencers, and The Republic is an exciting new chapter in his development as an accomplished synthesist.
On Wednesday, June 3, Sam Prekop will be performing a headlining concert in Austin at Red 7. He will be joined by Austin dream-popper Abram Shook and one-man band My Empty Phantom. The best part? We have two tickets to giveaway to one of our lucky Red River Noise readers.
