Experimental Post-Punk artist CrowJane has revealed a new remix of her single “The Pharmacy“ which was produced by Daniel Munoz, via Kitten Robot Records. In addition, CrowJane, aka Heather Galipo, will be playing a release show for her debut album Mater Dolorosa at Los Angeles’ Zebulon (2478 Fletcher Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90039) on June 23rd, 2022. Tickets for the event can be found here.
While stuck in quarantine, Galipo decided to play around with the songs from her debut, remixing and reimagining the songs in new contexts.
Daniel Munoz and I started pulling apart these tracks, adding a different flair and personal touches. We remixed ‘The Pharmacy’ to give it new life and to create something we think will be great at a live show.
Mixing contemporary production with a DIY aesthetic on her album Mater Dolorosa, CrowJane and Roessler together explored sound textures and other effects to create haunting vocals.
Mater Dolorosa was an experimental adventure of messing with different sounds and homemade instruments. For example, I used foil and hit it with a pencil as a ‘snare’ sound on ‘Circular Valley,’ for instance. I’m happy with the way it turned out and I think it is a good first album and it won’t be the last.
Coming from a visual art background of surrealism and horror, CrowJane has built a career as a professional effects makeup artist who has worked on Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.3, American Horror Stories, Mulan, HBO’s Winning Time, The Orville, FX’s Dave, We Need To Do Something, Cheaper By The Dozen, Dancing With The Stars, The Last Of Us: Part II, Star Wars: Fallen Order, and more alongside her music career.
