MP3 At 3PM: Sam Prekop

Old Punch Card is Chicago native Sam Prekop’s first solo album in five years, and it’ll certainly throw you for a loop, because if you’re expecting to hear his distinctive voice a la the Sea And Cake, well, think again. The album is a dark, experimental composition using only modular synthesizers, devoid of both vocals and beats. Old Punch Card is out September 7 via Thrill Jockey, and Prekop will join the Sea And Cake on a tour with Broken Social Scene soon after the release. Download album track “The Silhouettes” below.
