Nick Krgovich gave an intimate solo performance last weekend in Anacortes not as Gigi, his latest project with producer Colin Stewart and a slew of who’s-whos in underground pop, but as P:ano. It seems only fitting to talk about this new project on the same day I post that P:ano live review. Even more so being that Gigi’s debut album, Maintenant, hits next week via Tomlab.
Gigi’s sounds blend modern underground pop with a Specter-influenced early 60s pop influence. Krgovich has demonstrated a unique versatility in his previous groups P:ano and No Kids; his appetite for bringing forth eras of another time into the modern world while simultaneously toying with them for truly amazing affects is insatiable. And it shows in everything he touches.
With Gigi, Krgovich and Stewart invite a few friends along for the ride, from some fellow No Kids and P:ano members to Joey Cook of Pomegranates, the infamous Rose Melberg, and Mirah. The list continues… Karl Blau, Zac Pennington, Katy Davidson, Owen Pallett, Duffy Driediger and Ryan Peters… and more.
