ENTERTAINMENT TO COME FOUR YEARS AFTER THEIR LAST ACCLAIMED SOPHOMORE ALBUM ON MAY 5th
Fischerspooner, the art pop performance project created and helmed by Warren Fischer and Casey Spooner, is back with their third album Entertainment. Recorded over a two-year period with producer Jeff Saltzman (The Killers, Sounds) and featuring Ann Magnuson (Bongwater), Gabriel Olegavich (Lady Sovereign, Spektrum) and Steven Stein (Double Dee & Steinski), the album marks another huge step forward by the group.
Started as a collaboration at The School of the Art Institute Chicago, Fisherspooner evolved from TV pilot to art world sensation to international pop stars in the short span of a few years. Equally informed by Spooner's love of pop confection and experimental theatre as by Fischer's classical training and background in the seminal math-rock band Table, the band exploded into the new millennium, paving the way for electronic dance artists like Justice, MSTRKRFT, and Simian Mobile Disco. Their single Emerge from their debut album #1 broke the UK Top 40 while follow up Odyssey found them collaborating with everyone from Linda Perry to David Byrne to Susan Sontag to Mirwais.
Discovering the hard way that the art and music world do not co-exist, along with the disintegration of their label Capitol, Casey and Warren found their way back to their original ethos. This album will be released on FS Studios, their own label where they had originally released the first Fischerspooner record. With a live show focusing on dance, dialogue, and video over a year in the works, Entertainment is another chapter in the evolving experimental pop synthesis that is Fischerspooner.
