“High Priestess” (Live On KCRW) (Video)

    The Los Angeles-based new Jersey transplant Pat Grossi, better known as Active Child, performed a session for KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic yesterday. Video from those recordings has already surfaced online, in the shape of this clip of “High Priestess.” This cut from You Are All I See demonstrates Grossi’s singular vision, where his stringy falsetto combines with washes of harp and processed beats. The delicately structured song gradually builds over time, reaching a crescendo just after the midway point before Grossi finishes it off with some heavily affected vocals. This up-close clip offers a fascinating look at how he gets to that point. Check it out below. [via AHIAS]
