These four songs that clock in at 30 minutes will also be available on thier forthcoming full length (TBA). Check them out on their summer west coast tour with Gifts From Enola!
Piano Piano was founded in Seattle Washington in late-2011 by four acquaintances and past
collaborators. Driven by a mutual appreciation of all forms of music, the mission was to traverse new
stylistic and technical boundaries in an immediately accessible context, with both careful consideration for
the listener and utter disregard to serving anyone except the song. It is a personal journey of four
musicians within the whole. Musica gratia musica. The rest is filler.
Piano Piano’s debut full-length album, ‘When I was not in myself, no one alarmed me’, will be released on
August 18th 2013. The album was recorded and mixed at Bear Creek Studio in Woodenville, WA by Jerry
Streeter (Blonde Redhead, The Lumineers). Mastering will be performed at Sterling Sound in New York
City by Greg Calbi (Mogwai, Grizzly Bear, Shearwater, Blonde Redhead, Sonic Youth, Low, Sunny Day
Real Estate). The album was predominantly tracked live to cature the purest possible essense of
Following an affinity for a diverse, constantly evolving, and ever-expanding web of influences in all
genres, ‘When I was not in myself, no one alarmed me’ was composed and refined in little more than a
year. While not a concept album per say, the material is meant to be experienced in a single sitting as a
cohesive entity, and song transitions are intended to flow seamlessly. The band is already composing
new material, which will serve as a step forward into ever-more uncharted and nuanced territory. The
future is open.

Levator’s music, comparable to Morphine, Sonic Youth and Mazzy Star, has an almost tranquilizing effect, with Lynn’s silvery voice sounding almost haunting at times. Working with a plethora of vintage effects pedals and creating live loops on the spot, the band meshes together seamlessly, and commands absolute attention in the most wonderful and unexpected way. - Synthesis
Seattle’s Levator are rocking so much Cocteau Twins in the tour van that they seem to have decoded Liz Fraser’s elfin ramblings and translated them into English. - San Diego City Beat
