Boomkat Product Review:
"Peptalk is Michael Carter (electronics), Shayna Dunkelman (percussion) and Angelica Negron (voice). The band was born in Oakland, CA where electronic musician Mike Carter and percussionist Shayna Dunkelman were inspired by how mid-century exotica artists like Esquivel, Robert Drasnin and Martin Denny used percussion with bird calls, synthesizers and orchestra instruments to envision strange faraway places. Mike and Shayna upped and left for Brooklyn, where they met composer, singer, and multi-instrumentalist Angelica Negron. Drawing on their shared love of Exotica, J-Pop, Dub and the many variants of electronic music, Peptalk's visceral music combines numerous exotic instruments with lush electronic sounds and airy vocals. They are obsessed with creating a hyperreal world both sonically and visually by blending fragments of memory from their lives in Tokyo, San Juan and Los Angeles. Each band member also plays with bands and artists such as Yoko Ono, Xiu Xiu, Thurston Moore, Balun, and Tyondai Braxton, but by joining forces, they create rich musical arrangements that are both highly original and, crucially, highly accessible."
