Six Ways from Sunday
Thick As Thieves is the musical collaboration of Daniel Lippincott and David Levy. Daniel, hailing from Oakland, met his Portland counterpart some 3 years gone by and after a brief visit to David's studio to hear some musical ideas it was clear that a future lay waiting for these two musical prodigies. In their own ways representing a 'left coast sound' in the American musical landscape, these two bring together an vast array of influences which combine to form a truly unique yet very familiar sound. Daniel's blues and rock background blends seamlessly with David's deep knowledge of electronic and dance music. In fact, both of them share a love of DJing which was anther initial point of connection and this shared love of 'beats' shows up clearly in every song they produce. Truly a labor of love, 'Six Ways from Sunday' took all of 3 years to complete and represents the possibilities of long-distance collaboration at it's finest. Take a good listen to a new sound in modern music that will surely stand the test of time. Thick As Thieves are the latest group to join the Splintered Tree roster. In this release they are presenting their debut effort, 'Six Ways from Sunday', an EP package of 5 well-crafted songs. The arrangements always start for simple ideas that grab the listeners attention right away and then slowly build up layers of sound and complexity often peaking with big pop-music chorus filled with vocal harmonies and blankets of sonic bliss. David started the project initially, and every song thereafter, by providing lush instrumental beds of sound for Daniel to bring his years of songwriting, singing, and production skills into the fold. The results are stunning to hear and truly the result of a lengthy effort worthy of the title of the release.
