Modern Griots Review: Pegasus Warning’s “Woof Ticket”


The songs on Pegasus Warning’s latest EP, Woof Ticket, has a yearning to them. Just like the title of the first track “Acoustic,” his voice and the music desire a sensual, acoustic feel, but the electronic format of the music simultaneously dismembers and distorts singer, Guillermo E. Brown, taking him away from it. Like double consciousness or as if shapeshifting within the songs, you can feel the struggling oscillation between the electric machinery and the soul in it. An electronic blues or as described here: ” the computer dies in a fit of glitches, it makes one final sputtering glorious sound.” Just listen to “Try So Hard” or “Mountain.”

Take a look at the cover art, which Wangechi Mutu designed, and the behind-the-scenes interview with her:
