Chicago bred, Brooklyn based electronic duo Gilligan Moss are back with a delux-ury follow up to their debut album featuring remixes, reworks, covers, and new music from friends, family and heroes alike… The deluxe edition features new takes from Cyril Hahn, Young & Sick, Mindchatter, SuperParka, Holiday87 (The Knocks) + new music from Gilligan Moss.
As GM states, “Gilligan Moss is back with a vengeance! This album is bigger, bolder, and significantly more deluxe than the OG version. Powerfully injected with remixes from friends + heroes, alternate song versions, and a tasty new treat for fans of GM new and old alike. Crack a cold yerba maté, dust off your summer clothes and have one last dance with us.”
Recorded over the course of three years in a handful of different locations, the debut album Gilligan Moss combined the duo’s love of seventies records and dance music - both modern and early. The original 13-track affair, featured lush dance vibes, fluttering instrumentation, steady kick drums and ethereal vocals.
“Many of the first ideas for the record were formed at Camp GilMo in upstate NY” adds Gilligan Moss. “The whole writing process was reminiscent of a summer camping trip. Our goal was to make something that wasn’t of a particular moment, but something eternal that spanned across a few generations of music. Imagining the world of Gilligan Moss - it's tied to nature; we often imagine a colorful forested land where the creatures and fauna bop along to the music. The tunes are meant to be playful in form and feeling - they all have a sense of humor and lightness about them.”
Now the feel-good tracks from the LP see a new light shined on them from an eclectic group of artists that bring their own interpretations to Gilligan Moss’ sunkissed music.
