Recorded, mIxed, and mastered by Reed Fuchs at Moon Magnet Studios. Featuring members of Rubedo, Rose Quartz, Wild High, A Mac-DZ, Ancient Elk, and Turner Jackson.
déCollage performed with of Montreal & Diane Coffee Oct 28th and released Psycholodge EP through Moon Magnet's Lunadrifter, the label's custom smart phone app from Ghost Time Games. It's synesthetic and you won't ever play the song the same twice. As the listener draws, kaleidoscopic fractals follow and affect the music with filters, FX... it's even possible to slow/speed/reverse every song and send a remix video to friends!

deCollage in the Press:
Culture Magazine: ireadculture.com/indulge-your-senses-in-sound/
"Truly, déCollage are about indulging all the senses in their live performances, not just providing aural entertainment. For this reason, they will be releasing their new record in a very interactive, synesthesia-inducing format, where the listener can manipulate the songs."
Marquee Magazine: marqueemag.com/2015/11/de-collage-psycholodge/
"Producer Reed Fuchs, who recorded, mixed and mastered the entire project, seems to be quite literally making a collage of psych with his team of cosmic explorers. Weaving together a vast array of genres into a tapestry of sounds heavy on experimental psych. The release was through Moon Magnet’s Lunadrifter custom app, which couples the ambient, spacey songs with equally visually out-there fractals and heady images that the user/listener can manipulate sonically and optically on the fly."
"Moon Magnet is a hive for artists to experiment making new flavors of honey and the energy here facilitates a spirit of endless possibilities. We want to inspire other people to try new things. You can do anything with practice, barriers are mostly mental."
Denver Westword: www.westword.com/music/seven-of-denvers-most-underrated-bands-6044879
"The fusion of surrealistic psychedelia akin to of Montreal with playfully colorful childlike myth-making makes this band’s shows feel magical and otherworldly but grounded.”
Hey Reverb: www.heyreverb.com/blog/2015/10/26/psyched-out-denvers-flaural-and-decollage-are-sick-of-your-labels-man/109232/
"While the band has psych-rock tendencies, it strives to push sonic boundaries by making art imitate life. Fuchs takes sounds from the world around him, even at breakfast. Yes, the grinding of coffee makers or the stirring of oatmeal can be made into a mind-bending soundscape. Fuchs’ experimental vision inspired the new “Lunadrifter” app, a trippy mobile game that allows fans to interact with déCollage’s upcoming “Psycholodge” EP. Gamers can choose a song and manipulate it using various filters or effects. This creates a wildly colorful kaleidoscopic vortex that they can share with friends.”

déCollage continues to transform the visual world of mixed media into a delightful audio world of surrealist avant-pop. déCollage uses unexpected instruments in their musical compositions: a tea strainer, dustpan percussion, wine glasses, and a few audio samples of Richard Nixon. A typewriter clicks away rhythmically for the beat of the first track, “Gotta Good Thing Going Pt 1.”
