Eskimobot - біографія, альбоми, пісні, кліпи

Eskimobot is Kimi Recor and Edwin Garro. It’s a love story, a broken fairytale, a hand-scribbled journal of youthful days. Kimi and Ed have been making music together since the moment they met. That was in 2003, when Kimi was a lovely, shy 18-year-old singer from Colorado, and Ed, ten years her senior, was living another life as the respected San Francisco drum ‘n bass producer UFO!. They met in the darkness of an SF club, where Ed told Kimi that her face was “aerodynamic.” That sealed it—they had found in each other an artistic muse. Ed knew nothing about singing; Kimi knew nothing about four counts. They ran off into the city, two kids in love on a musical playground, starting and ending countless bands. past live show members: Alex Posell, Jennifer Fraser (Zaza), Milena Mepris of Pin Me Down.


Eskimobot began in the summer of 2005 when Kimi and Ed moved to New York. The project was a response to dark times: breaking up for the final time, living together in a tiny, sweltering Brooklyn apartment, knowing no friends in an unforgiving city. Eskimobot were two lost children, perched on the bed with a laptop and a microphone, imagining a place where they could be safe. They create music like kids play catch: Kimi spins song lyrics from snippets of her own diary entries, then tosses her words to Ed for synth lines or distorted accordion samples, and back and forth, and on and on. Four years later, they are based once again in San Francisco, where Kimi is currently the front-woman for the San Francisco synth band Lilofee, and Ed produces and remixes artists around the Bay Area. As Eskimobot, they have produced two albums—Lullabies for Insomniacs (2009, Sanguine Recordings) and the as-yet-unreleased Waltzes for Chorophobics—and moved into new musical territories (live guitar for Kimi, vocals for Ed). They remain, as always, musical soul mates. (-Anna Balkrishna)
