I think it was back in April that my buddy Klint and I went to see SKULL DEFEKTS feat. Daniel Higgs and Zomes at the DangerDanger Gallery in Philadelphia. Higgs mentioned something about Pawtucket, RI on stage but for the life of me I can’t remember if they had already played there or were headed in that direction.
Either way, the Defekts, Higgs and Zomes ended up getting some studio time in Pawtucket; the results of which is the 2013-3012 LP, currently available on ThrillJockey Records. (for those of us who don’t a record player fear not- it comes with a download code for the songs.)
I really enjoyed PEER AMID, and was lucky enough to film Zomes playing with them (click the Skull Defekts tag here on OV) so this is pretty awesome all around. And it comes with a painted Daniel Higgs cover.

It’s been a while since I listened to the Skull Defekts CD. ‘Peer Amid’ came into rotation today on my iPod via shuffle so I figured it was time for another live Higgs/Defekts video, recorded 7th April at Philadelphia’s DANGERDANGER Gallery.
Higgs looks like he could be the next member of Team Zissou.

Daniel said that this song, Children of Skull Defekts, had just recently been written/recorded in Rhode Island. This performance features Asa Osborne (Zomes) on keyboard. The PEER AMID album was really catchy and a great return for Higgs to a more traditional ‘band’ format that a lot of us have been missing post Lungfish. If they’re writing more songs, does that mean we can expect another collaboration?
