Rare Fruit

We found Rare Fruit on accident while searching for bands in Georgia; it is a project of Kian's out of Miami, Florida. Most of Rare Fruit is created with samples, tape loops, guitar, and effect pedals. The tape loops are made from cassettes, opened and the tape conected to itself to create a circuit. The same method is also used with reel-to-reel tapes. Kian records onto some of these tapes and the rest come from found sounds of tapes mostly acquired at garage sales. The results are pretty cool making some unusual yet pleasing songs. You can download a free release from Rare Fruit too! If you liked Spark Routes you'd probably be into this.

Kian also had this really cool video on his page for the song "Lucky" which doesn't appear on the free release.
