'Cook Cut Damage Destroy'
Catalogue Number SIL011

Buy

Prop's groundbreaking debut album 'Small Craft Rough Sea' finds new breath in musical kitchens of Stereolab, Burnt Friedman, Mice Parade, Paul Mac & Dirty Cub, Telemetry Orchestra, PNAU, The Presets, Decoder Ring and many more. The results are true sonic explorations into the heart of the original tracks.

Over a year in the making, this album is more than just a collection of remixes... it's a diverse, yet cohesive collection of collaborative electronica. The album features the fusion of Prop's marimba and vibraphone section with cut up electronica and dubbed out glitchy rhythms, experimental looping and for the first time in prop's life... vocals.

Cook cut damage destroy was created by the group sending out the original tracks to bands and producers whose music they enjoy. The results stand alone as a one of those must have electronica albums of the year. It was a Feature Album on Triple J and 'Blood Bubbles' featured on the Jeans West TV Ad Campaign.

  2. Statice (Mount Zero Remix by Stereolab)
  3. Infinite Re-Chauffe (Landing Remix by Mako)
  4. Big Reply (Portal Remix by Telemetry Orchestra)
  5. First We Kill Them Then We ... (Care for Them Remix by Pivot)
