Gauzy electronics meet layered cello on PDP III’s Pilled Up on a Couple of Doves





“A map of liminal space. Music to get lost to.”

PDP III have released their debut album, titled Pilled Up on a Couple of Doves, via Shelter Press.

PDP III is formed of composer/producer Britton Powell, composer/cellist Lucy Railton and producer Brian Leeds, aka Huerco S.

Pilled Up on a Couple of Doves began with a series of compositional sketches by Powell, which the trio used as a framework for collective improvisation, alongside wholly spontaneous moments.

Following its recording, Powell spent two years editing and collaging the resuslts, with the subseqeuntly album spanning industrial murmurs, abstract vocals, gauzy electronics and layered cello.

It follows the label’s release of Marina Rosenfeld’s Deathstar album, in 2020.
