Saskatoon psych-electro project result of collaboration
BODY LVL, the psych-electro project of Will Kaufold and Mehta Valby-Youngs, will be dropping their new debut EP at a release party at Amigos on Jan. 18. (That’s tonight!)
Opening the show is Mehta and Sleepwreck.
This collaboration has been the result of a long history together. Both Kaufold and Valby-Young did time in the oft-romanticized multi-instrumental group No Birds and in the now-defunct Feral Children.
“While touring with Feral Children last summer, we realized that there was another project emerging from our listening sessions and discussions,” says Valby-Youngs. “We’ve always had a comfortable bluntness about each other’s sounds, and it made sense to restrict it to the two of us and not worry about hurting anyone’s feelings or driving anyone crazy with our ridiculous ideas.
“We are happy with how the project is turning out, so there will be lots more in the future.”
