Having rotated between a handful of cast and characters under various titles over the years (Jepeto Solutions, CE Schneider Topical, Christina Schneider's Genius Grant...) Schneider has settled on the pop moniker Locate S,1 for her newest album, Healing Contest.
Healing Contest stands out as the fully realized, high-fidelity collaboration pairing Schneider’s compositions with the iconic creative force behind of Montreal. Produced, engineered and mixed by Kevin Barnes, Healing Contest is the debut release from Barnes' new label, Sybaritic Peer.
On Healing Contest, Schneider is back with a futuristic palette of electronic drums, funky bass lines, and quietly hyperactive chord progressions that are sure to impress even the most learned musical millennial. Locate S,1 is the result of a seasoned songwriter cum lo-fi home-recorder delving into the world of mid-fi pop, with results that are pleasantly difficult to define; a technical tour-de-force that extrapolates high-brow jazz harmonics and prog-rock time signatures into a whole menagerie of new forms—all while still passing as pop.
