Pulco is the alter ego of Ash Cooke, who was a member of the indie rock band, Derrero. Sketchbook Season marks his seventh recording as Pulco. The only complaint I have with it is that I wish there more of it. Cooke explains that his “aim was to try and record something new, different and eclectic.” That objective was clearly met.
Heavy doses of looped samples pervade this EP. Cooke pushes boundaries that border on eccentric (i.e., Whistle Frog Finds A Way and Hair), simple (Don’t Stand Down) and sublime (Party Started). You can check out more from Cooke on Bandcamp where you can purchase the entire Pulco catalogue. Get Sketchbook Season free, while you still can.
