1.
Mandarin 02:17
Pain is love is closeness; as time stops we disappear. Haloed shadows swimming in and out of us. My hands sticky from the mandarins in bed. A genuine reflection of me, in you, through joyful sex. My teeth graze your fist. I am the golden girl through force and gentle touch; My sex through sweat and orofice tending. The hand that folds the fabric of time.
2.
I’m able to see all sides, but I can’t make a decision. Each with equal value, folded like an origami octagon. Repeating the same action -expecting different results- Repeating the same action -to a fault- Machine, Machine! Machine, Machine! A ritual, a habit. A ritual, a habit. A constellation of mold grows alongside the machine, creating chaos in the monotony of order. It blooms out like a collage of pressed flowers multiplying from the epicenter - the source - the darkness. Machine, Machine! Machine, Machine! Don’t bite dog, don’t bite! Don’t bite dog, play nice. A ritual, a habit - Denier of possibility.
3.
Top Ticket 03:03
Chevron stripes; Five minutes on the highway. Ohhh she’ll mark her territory, but I’m undercover with a flash-light. Hot tip - the girls like to tease her. Hot tip - let me win or I just might cry. I want the Top - Ticket; Nothing average, nothing contrived. None of that consumer grade shit! Top pick, No - Game - Winner, you wanna groove with me? I’ll need strict compliance. High speed. High performing. Midnight cruising. Conventional bondage. Beat it down with the double play. Beat it down with the double playyy! I want the Top - Ticket.
4.
Lovers' Lane 03:28
Baby wants to sit in a parked car, Baby wants to sit in a parked car - with me. Turn left at lovers lane. Turn off the engine to turn me on. Tell your mama you’ll be late. Tell your mama you’ll be late - late late - tonight.

Vinaigrette 01:19
7.
How does one learn to tread water in an emergency? Try being vertical for a change instead of on your back. Assert the common enemy - a ritual burning - We’ll have to slash and burn. Who’s going to help us now? Masculinity on exhibition. A rare bird with dirty plumage. Buy my book - I’ll tell you our history. Buy my book - I’ll sell you our history.
8.
Expectations 02:25
9.
Soft Dance 03:46
A soft dance -Night drive alone with you- Laughing our heads off. Touch my face and I’ll sing you a song, though your heart may be broken. We dance to forget our heads, We dance to lose our heads. We’re just passing through... We are just passing through. A soft dance -I’d rather contemplate abstract thoughts with you - And I’m also good with color. A soft dance We dance to lose our heads, We dance to forget our heads. Ohhh and don’t forget to have a good time! Laughing our heads off! Tripping our heads off! A soft dance. The roots make shapes, Interwoven - interwoven.

Shimmy 01:07

Pink Shiver 04:15
(Physical Education) Heaven! I’m in heaven! Heaven! I’m in heaven! Pink shiver, pink shiver. Pink shiver, tongue kisser. Explore this great American landscape, With dumb passion! Ohhh pillow talker, You’re a sloppy kisser but I like it. I just thought we came here to listen to records. Pink shiver, pink shiver. Pink shiver, human quiver. I’m in heaven.

about

Available in LP, Special Edition LP and CD Formats. First 100 LPs hand-numbered. Special Edition LPs come with bonus 'Sick, Sad, Fun!' cassette.

A Bandcamp 'Essential' Release (March 6, 2020)

"A veritable sonic Reese’s Cup"
– Brooklyn Vegan

"A caustic synthesis of art rock, no wave and electronic music"
– Treble Zine (Album Of The Week)

"A proper Chimera of a record... a Cronenberg movie turned into an electronic album"
- Loud & Quiet (8/10)

'Person' is the debut from NYC's P.E., a band born of the city's art-punk underground and dedicated to freaky experimentation. Comprising Veronica Torres, Jonathan Campolo, and Benjamin Jaffe (all of the beloved and freshly defunct Pill) alongside Jonathan Schenke and Robert Jones of the electronic/art-rock favorite Eaters, P.E. features some of NYC's most notable experimental voices. Early shows were entirely improvisational, allowing the group to develop a collaborative chemistry that led to an equally free-form recording process. 

The resulting LP displays the group’s collective experience writing memorable songs, matched with a dedication to tearing them apart at the seams. Recorded at Schenke's Studio Windows, Person holds the spark of P.E.'s early improvisations in its clattering industrial percussion, zigzagging synths and sax, and colorful dystopian poetry. The group's natural language results in a sonic lexicon reflecting the unnatural surroundings of their adopted home in NYC—chaotic yet alluring, gnarly, and fun. Sold and packaged with a tender tone, this is music for fully-formed persons aware of their ideological discrepancies. Turn on the human music of the 21st century.
