PBDY (pronounced Peabody) is a LA-based producer and DJ. He announced the release of the debut full-length. Careworn is out today via Brainfeeder. According to the press release, it defies easy categorisation, floating between highly textured ambient soundscapes and widescreen electronica, drawing inspiration from experimental doom/sludge metal act The Body, Massive Attack and film scores such as “Moonlight” by Nicholas Britell.
It features Jeff Parker (of pioneering post-rock outfit Tortoise), Miguel Atwood-Ferguson (violin), drummer Justin Brown (Thundercat, Ambrose Akinmusire), Brainfeeder label mates Salami Rose Joe Louis (vocals) and Miguel Baptista Benedict (guitar), violinist Tylana Renga, Casey MQ (Unbuttoned), French/Canadian duo O’Hara, pianist MICHELANGEL0 and vocalist Anika who is best known for her collaborative work with Geoff Barrow (Beak / Portishead) and her band Exploded View. Watch the official video for the track “Tears or Rain“.
