The Biltmore Cabaret & BeatRoute (BC) Present: DADA PLAN "A Dada Plan is Free" LP release with special guests MESA LUNA GRETCHEN SNAKES DJ's Josh Wells & Sipreano A Dada Plan is Free is the debut full length LP from art-rock 5 piece Dada Plan. Recorded and mixed to tape in a week long marathon session by Josh Wells (Black Mountain, Destroyer), it runs through the lineage of American outsider pop from the Velvets to Hieroglyphics. Musically influenced by the unconventional arrangements of early Brian Eno and Robert Wyatt, and lyrically inspired by poets like bill bissett and Ed Sanders, Dada Plan's serious yet surreal sound is captured in a whirl of saxophones, drum machines, congas and synths. Songs like The Hanging Mirrors of Life-Skype and Vaguely Mystical touch lyrically on the technological absurdism of now, while Mr Window or Bury Me Low feel like bizarre updated versions of classic Lennon or Bowie existential ballads. A Dada Plan is Free features eight originals and two covers: Breathe Again by White Fence, their favourite of the new weirdo songwriters; and Human Language by Aceyalone, their first exploration into the realm of hip hop from the perspective of a contemporary genre hopping rock band. Self-released and distributed worldwide through Kingfisher Bluez, A Dada Plan is Free is a visit to a dystopian landscape that explores every angle of the modern dilemma, a soundtrack to the post-oil spill northwest of tomorrow.
