Dead Recipe

If you like your pop music a bit on the weird side, Santa Cruz duo Dead Recipe may be for you. Formed by Austin natives Kyle Albrecht and Camille Lewis, Dead Recipe takes somewhat standard melodies and surrounds them with tons of heavily-modulated samples and delicious oddball soundscapes. Albrecht tells me that the duo has collaborated over email for much of their existence and has seen four other members come and go, but now they are settled in Santa Cruz to work in person as a pair. For live shows, both Lewis and Albrecht are on samplers, with Lewis also playing guitar and Albrecht on keys. They’re playing a pair of local dates with GRMLN this weekend – details are below their latest release, Day of Mangoes.
