''I need someone else to motivate me, and in this case it was Justin,” Berenyi recalled. “He sent drum tracks with guitar parts and odd words, so I wrote some vocals and lyrics, which became ‘This Must Be Bedlam’ and ‘Never Enough.’ When Mick added bass, it sounded great. When Moose added guitar and keyboards — I’d never written like that before, it was such good fun.” much press follows Piroshka's 1st new song revealed recently, as well as interviews with all members of the band and more! follow the band on social media to get more news in time! some useful links here: https://misanthropesmusicguide.wordpress.com/2018/11/06/piroshka-everlastingly-yours/?fbclid=IwAR2NO-R2c6ENEXSVwWDWynp5mg5IgAa9rfgqWhBU-ODpAl2Bn9cv5NsKsfg http://www.brooklynvegan.com/piroshka-lushelasticamodern-english-announce-debut-lp-share-everlastingly-yours/?fbclid=IwAR300vslNjeofkgbNXMPJ8mHz0Wv7vNSyzvvzSaoErMlSWwh3xwtMtUma7E https://www.stereogum.com/2020988/piroskhka-everlastingly-yours-lush-miki-berenyi/premiere/?fbclid=IwAR28kLQtu69z2F_JvAVnzIAPugPddSscI-1u25T9ojJvsw0uaZHkhBKp7nU http://bigtakeover.com/interviews/Piroshka?fbclid=IwAR2A0rgab8pjnlQL96pCVKC4c22axyM757bR7gUd_8FIN3MQqoWP4S1QzV0 http://www.cristinarocks.com/2018/11/piroshka-ft-miki-berenyi-announce-debut.html?fbclid=IwAR3-feY0NiCvF2wRdqAiPqsOKiFxRMbltuNN_x5WMP3_jhQ5uJGlpvmbeuk http://www.undertheradarmag.com/news/piroshka_members_of_lush_elastica_modern_english_moose_announce_album_share?fbclid=IwAR1esQspYxzw8RwQ1y_WkfYaq6NGIzfZeamBqZFVmNqrMidZ6JoPmuC_en8 https://music.mxdwn.com/2018/11/06/news/piroshka-announces-debut-album-brickbat-out-february-2019-and-shares-track-everlastingly-yours/?fbclid=IwAR2HeTq4GCJUbfR2B2Eg77fTj3N2i7uA7Jm9C0wj7TJ6CMacxcugw9sooQY http://rocknyc.live/piroshka-members-of-lush-modern-english-moose-elastica-share-track-everlastingly-yours-debut-album-brickbat-due-out.html?fbclid=IwAR0sCNtpawAo3bFgQqIVX4pb_wWorN34Fb4D2xKJnSM7Y_VddjWC5zX8s-A https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WOWkkTKu3mQ

post Elastica 2002 & onwards.. Justine Frischmann gained prominence as a rocker in her early 20s with her band, Elastica. She turned her back on that realm to enroll in the Buddhist curriculum at Naropa Institute, and emerged with a disciplined painting practice. She straddles quite polarized worlds with the light she explores, having traversed the spotlight, the urban glare of media scrutiny, to the coastal light of the rural North Bay’s fog-mitigated ambience. Deploying a kind of light refraction through the use of oil paint, acrylic spray enamel, and repurposed photography, she balances urban and natural inferences, and captures an aura somewhere between limelight and inner light in the process. The sublimation print process involves heating the aluminum plate and embedding the inks within the grain of the surface, hence starting the image back behind the plane, and imbuing the overall picture with a somewhat holographic effect. Frischmann juxtaposes gesture and architecture, mass tone and translucence, improvisation and a considered physicality, all in the service of an art of threshold states. Rather than simply stacking the three media she employs, she shuffles them, with the fluorescent spray acting as an arbitrator between the origami folds of her photo-based imagery and a fatty layer of high-valued oil paint. In the energy and immediacy of her gesture she achieves visual equivalencies for the punk ethic of London of the ‘90s, but she captures more than a simple equivalent of the tropes of an alternative social scene. The deep memory of painting as a medium pushes her work past fashion into the realm of what is perennial in the human condition. The equivalencies she sets up mirror such basic building blocks as vulnerability and adaptation, loss and recovery, growth and discovery, and forgiveness. Painting and the life of a painter seem to accommodate the scope of Frischmann’s ambition more readily than the music scene she left behind, not only in sheer expression, but in her reach for an organizing principle, a position taken both in and out of the light, in response to things as they are, readily shifting as they do from brightness to shadow and back again. http://justinefrischmann.net/home.html (paintings, installations)
