Boomkat Product Review:
*5 CD box set, collating tracks from their entire catalogue, including the brand new album, Offgrid:Offline plus rarities & previously unreleased material* "In an inventive reinterpretation of ‘the box set’, Looper have curated the database of their entire body of work as five separate CDs, themed by type and entitled ‘Lexiphonics’, ‘Kinokraft’, ‘Voxtrot’, ‘Transmitte’ and ‘Melos’: Inspired by mixtapes and their modern day equivalent, the playlist, ‘These Things’ puts the songs in new contexts, allowing new relationships between works previously kept apart. Looper explain, “For us this box is a repurposed, recycled and renewed work - an attempt to make something new out of something old.” The concept of sampling - present both in the construction of the early music and the creation of the playlists - assumes visual form in the cut-and-paste collage artwork by Karn David. Photographs from the Looper archives illustrate her unique liner notes: quotes and ‘samples’ from music reviews and articles from the time of the original releases, collaged together to tell the story of Looper. Looper emerged from Belle & Sebastian in 1997 when Stuart David (co-founder and bass player of B&S) and his wife Karn (an artist who directed the early B&S videos) collaborated for a show at Glasgow School Of Art. A degree show fundraiser for Stuart’s sister Karla Black - who received a Turner Prize nomination in 2011 - the performance was a multimedia affair incorporating TVs, Super 8 film, 35mm slides and kinetic sculptures. Since nothing broke down and everyone clapped, they decided to keep doing it."
