Prairie - biography

Prairie is the solo project of Marc Jacobs. Prairie plays guitar and electronics, composes original soundtracks for Super 8mm films, plays with other musicians and is one half of improvisation duo Prairie Calmel with performer Lucille Calmel.


His first EP, "I'm So In Love I Almost Forgot I Survived A Disaster" released last year, sounded "post-everything: post punk, post rock, post drones, post ambient, post noise fused into a haunting soundtrack filled with guitars, electronic rhythms and effects, film music and conversation snippets" (Gonzo Circus magazine).

"Like a Pack of Hounds" - words taken from Cormac McCarthy's novel Blood Meridian - is the logical follow-up, blending layers of lo-fi hiss entangled into hidden melodies, loud guitar outbursts with voices appearing like lost ghosts out of a southern gothic western. A restless ride into imaginary burned landscapes where romantic nightmares meet white magic to deliver tense and distorted soundscapes made of noise, field recordings and electro acoustic abstractions.
