Seinking Ships Relive The Past

From the POP! Stereo History of POP! comes today's lesson starring Eric Matthews and Miki Berenyi...

Eric Matthews...He was once of the legendary Cardinal - the groundbreaking orchestral pop act that paved the way for everyone from The Polyphonic Spree to Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes. Eric was also signed to Sub Pop and released the classic 'Fanfare' single (and an LP that MOJO cited as 'one of the 67 Lost albums You Must Own').

He decided to make an album with Ohio native Christopher Seink under the guise of Seinking Ships, that would be mainly instrumentals inspired by 80's soundtrack music. But somewhere during the recording of said instrumental album they decided some vocals would be great and the name Miki Berenyi comes up. Now note that Miki had pretty much dropped out of the music business after Lush.

Amazingly Eric found a way to get in touch, and sent her music. Even more amazingly Miki decided to become involved, and laid vocals on a few tracks for the album - a release that is entitled Museum Quality Capture.

Now with everything complete and Miki in tow, the record is set for release and shall be unleashed upon an unsuspecting public who may or may not remember any of this band's history.
