Before Gardens After Gardens
Label: Sargent House
Release date: February 07, 2012
Big Sir is the longtime collaboration between singer/composer Lisa Papineau and bassist/composer Juan Alderete (The Mars Volta). Since its inception in the late 90s, Big Sir has explored a vast array of work centered on the fulcrum of electronic and analog beats, Alderete’s fretless bass and Papineau’s dynamic voice. Their third official full length album Before Gardens After Gardens is the culmination of the duo’s enduring musical partnership. At times danceable, others darkly haunting, the album is as visually evocative and it is musically compelling.
