Josh Alper and Glenn Donaldson, both users from the psychedelic indie group the Skygreen Leopards, teamed up in the summertime of 2009 to focus on some lo-fi recordings as the Artwork Museums. Their jumbly, arty audio, influenced by Tv Personalities as well as the Kinks, mixed the Skygreen Leopards’ psychedelic jangle with gritty creation values (thanks a lot in large component to the classic 1985 Tascam 388 tape machine the duo utilized to help make the recordings) and austere computerized beats. Bassist Carly Putnam (Green Display) and drummer Virginia Weatherby (the Mantles) had been brought in to the flip to circular out the group’s live audio after Alper and Donaldson acquired documented what would end up being the Artwork Museums’ debut full-length record. That disc, Tough Frame, premiered on Woodsist Recordings in Feb 2010. A 7″ one, “S.H.O.P.P.We.N.G.,” was slated for discharge soon after.
