Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

2015 release from the singer/songwriter. Piney's sixth studio album was partly recorded in Andy Ramsey (of Stereolab)’s studio and features Andy on drums for select tracks as well as members of Gaz Coombes's live band and Emiliana Torrini’s band. The album channels ‘60s beat pop with a touch of Kraut rock, which creates a retro-futuristic angle. There’s a grungey riot grrl edge to it with growling, distorted guitars and there’s a synthy edge to it too, using vintage space echo, marimba, omnichord and pocket piano; they combine to create euphoric shimmering indie to reinforce riff-led guitar pop. Angela Penhaligon AKA Piney Gir is a singer/songwriter born in Kansas but based in London, England since 1998. Piney's musical style is predominately edgy indie-pop, although she has been described both as a musical “chameleon" and as “the indie Dolly Parton". Piney has collaborated with artists including Andy Ramsay of Stereolab, Rob Campanella from The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Eamon Hamilton from the band Brakes and British Sea Power and Simple Kid, and was a member of cult all-girl band The Schla La Las. Her songs have appeared on Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, Hit & Miss, Made in Chelsea, Misfits, Drifters, Waterloo Road, Being Human, Fried, Talking to the Dead, What Remains, Switch and in feature films: Nina Forever, You're Not You, C’e Chi Dice No and American Girl.
