Little Legs for Little Eggs Cover art

Quimper appears to be on pace to set the record for the number of EPs released in one year. Little Legs for Little Eggs is their third so far this year, pretty close to one per quarter, so I am expecting they will have another EP hit the streets by Christmas. This four-track EP continues their musical explorations into dark sinister electronic soundscapes. The opening track is “Thomas Egg Has Little Legs” and reminds me of the type of music we would hear in the 90s from the DIY cassette culture releases. There are muffled metallic rhythms, whispered vocals reciting the song title, rumbling electronics, and cheesy keyboard sounds. The second track, “Shrike,” is another lo-fi eerie electronics piece with some crackly sounds which might be the result of the bass register overpowering my speakers, I’m not sure, but it works with the music and bears some resemblance to Asmus Teitchens’s early experimental work. “Cut Below the Knee” is the third track, with a modulated and sustained cathedral organ chord, some tinkling and cascading piano chords, and eerie subliminal vocals. The title track closes the EP, which is a particularly outré and edge of consciousness piece with a little girl’s voice, probably Jodi Lowther’s, repeating the song and EP title. So if you are prepared to weird your neighbors out for Halloween, Quimper would be your artist of choice.
