about

Recorded live in a small room with only a handful of microphones (and no plan whatsoever), Argot, Vol. 1 is an Id-driven trip across a surrealistic neverland, revealing a side of Nathan Wade & The Dark Pioneers you've never heard before.

In just two short sessions, the band plowed through hours of inspired, spontaneous creation running the gamut from Pink Floydian synthed-out psychedelia (Roland Juno Blues), Sonic Youth-inspired art rock (I'm Your Secret Nurse), metal-infused techno-jazz (Son Of Glitch), to blissful, Sigur Ros-styled soundscapes (Angels Of Our Loss).

Everything you hear is an improvised first take, edited down from three hours of non-stop recording into 14 mind-warping musical curios.
