Aidan Baker with Kevin Micka “green figures” detailed

Aidan Baker and Kevin Micka (aka Animal Hospital) first met when they played together in Berlin (Baker’s current city of residence) in the spring of 2009 at a modest venue to an audience of perhaps five people…Despite these conditions, they recognized kindred audio spirits in each other and talked about playing and working together again. They got together again in November of 2009 for three shows: Boston (Micka’s hometown), Montreal, and Toronto (Baker’s hometown). In addition to an Animal Hospital set, Micka also played drums on some of Baker’s more song-oriented material, tunes from “Figures” and “Green & Cold.” The performance on November 28, 2009 at Casa del Popolo in Montreal, recorded by Eric Quach (aka Thisquietarmy), resulted in this album.
The addition of Kevin’s discreet drums to Aidan’s songs gives them a new and unique dimension, leaving the ethereal drone for a subtle (post-)rock. This is a new experience for Aidan’s audience. | | |
