BioJoin the Psapp Mailing List, Yeah: .. .. .. .. .. ......Your Name:.... ........ ......Your E-mail:.... ........ .... ...... .. .. PSAPP FACT SHEET (One is a fib) • Psapp is Galia Durant and Carim Clasmann. • Psapp is pronounced “Psapp”. • Psapp have released three albums, “Tiger My Friend”, “The Only Thing I Ever Wanted” and have just finished “The Camel’s Back” scheduled for release this Autumn. • Carim is a self-confessed studio geek and has worked in Can’s Inner Space studio and with Einsturzende Neubauten and Die Toten Hosen. He also has the best pair of ears in London which means people like Voice Of The Seven Woods go to him to master their album. • Galia is very crafty, and this is why she runs Craft Night where people can go and make things, listen to brilliant bands and enjoy her Dad rapping. • Psapp have exhibited their illustrations in both Paris and London and do all their own artwork - they’ve even designed a t shirt for Airside but still have trouble drawing a decent camel. • Carim cannot play the recorder, but he is pretty good on the Oud. • Psapp own a unicorn called Roderick, it likes cheese. • Psapp have released music on Leaf, Tomlab, Melodic, Arable, Gronland, Wiaiwya, Rallye and Domino. • Psapp have posed topless in Paris. • Psapp have fallen apart and put themselves together again several times. • Psapp have supported Deerhoof in London and toured North America with Jose Gonzales and Juana Molina. They have also played at Pukkelpop, The Big Chill, The Electric Picnic, Summer Sundae and lots of other places big and small, from Brixton Academy to a disused wood factory in Germany. • Psapp contributed to David Shrigley’s Worried Noodles compilation and played live at its launch. • The video for the single “Hi” was nominated for an MTV Woody. • Psapp have been awarded three BMI awards for their theme music for Grey’s Anatomy. • Galia can be very silly and Carim can be very wise, but sometimes it’s the other way round. • Psapp have, amongst others, remixed Astrud Gilberto and Pram. • Psapp’s instrument collection now fills two rooms and includes water pipes, a family of Casios and Bontempi organs, several egg slicers and is home to Brunhilde the famous mechanical chicken. PRAISE FOR PSAPP "(Psapp) effortlessly carve pop classicism" Mojo **** “Psapp make gold out of squeaky toys” Rolling Stone "Gloriously playful … one of the most exhilarating leftfield acts around" Musicweek “There is nothing better than listening to an album and loving it but not really knowing why. This is just such an album” 9/10 Future Music ‘All naïve choruses, unexpected harmonies and Durant's pure, mellifluous delivery, it's hard to find fault with this” Uncut “Gleeful mischief and philosophical melancholy mix with addictive melodies and electronic frolics…this is a lovely album by any criteria” Word "a genuinely engaging and eccentric listen full of wide eyed charm" **** DJ "Weird and wonderful … Massively inventive" Q “…Essential. Enough so for the words ‘progressive’ and ‘populist’ to be used in the same sentence” The List "Quirkily wonderful... More bands should sound like this" The Fly
