Video: Pick A Piper – All Her Colours feat. John Schmersal

Pick a Piper is a project by Canadian musician & producer, Caribou’s Brad Weber, with a little help from a lot of friends (including members of Ruby Suns, Enon/Brainiac, Born Ruffians and Braids). Following two sought after EPs, Pick A Piper today confirms the release of their self-titled debut LP for November 4 through City Slang. The album is made up of eight very different songs, all with one thing in common: each is built upon the foundation of its own ingenious rhythm structure, with musical layers meticulously applied, up until the vocals, which are added right at the very end, if at all.  Watch the official video for "All Her Colours" below. The track is still available for free download below.
