GOLD CASIO COSMOLOGY: THE NUE TESTAMENT

WHEN ON HIGH, the Cosmic Mirror Ball first shot forth its multitude of exuberant lights throughout the Universe, came forth from the Chaos, Gold Casio.

Both instrument and entity, keyboard and cabal; A spectral synthesizer permutating all realms of existence, from Internet to Grave. A voice from the urban wilderness, calling out and drawing in; Into dingy basements and darkened dance clubs with visions of sweaty nights. Sweaty nights of ecstatic apparitions and psychedelic nightmares. But what came first, the Fever, or the Dream?

Heed little the human counterparts of Gold Casio, for they are but vessels, merely mechanisms through which the Disco Gods make known their final decree. Party Forever? "Amen!"

Relinquish the curtains of this reality, strip away the layers of meaninglessness until all that remains are Babes and Bass. Only then will you begin to understand.

AND should you choose to behold Gold Casio, Lo, know thine time has come. For no longer can your arms remain tightly across your chest, nor your feet remain steadfastly planted on the ground.

Possessed by sound and light, tonight you will get down. And you're probably going to spill your drink.

To say that the newest release from Coco Columbia is one hell of a wild ride would be an understatement."

"Coco Columbia is a dream, a vehicle, a magic machine where the girl beneath the wig transmutes her real world fears into the raw stuff of courage, much as an alchemist alters gravel into gold."
-Eleven PDX Magazine (2016)

"Coco Columbia's sophomore album, When the Birds Begin to Walk, reveals itself as an astonishing 10-track gallery piece."
-Willamette Week (2016)

Music school dropout Coco Columbia burst onto the Portland music scene in 2014 with her debut, Kickstarter-funded album “The Weight.” Columbia set aside her passion for jazz drumming to teach herself how to write songs, record, make beats, and play piano. Having never performed live, she put together a group of young Portland jazz musicians to learn her material.

Columbia released her sophomore record, “When the Birds Begin to Walk” last August to critical acclaim in the Portland music scene. Her music fuses infectious indie-pop melodies, off-kilter rhythmic feels, dreamy-eyed electro-soul soundscapes, and jazzy harmony to create her own brand of bumpin' future-pop.

Kulululu has traveled long and far to finally arrive on earth. While here, Kulululu is in search of the answers to the questions; why? and why not? You may not understand what they are saying. You may not understand why they look the way they do. They may not understand these things either. What's important is that time is continuous, and without it we cannot find our way back to where we started.
