Mutual Attraction Vol. 1 - OUT NOW!
March 20, 2020
In the way that music is a grand tapestry of past, present, and future threads woven together, the Mutual Attraction series explores what happens when an artist meditates deeply on the influential threads of their musical past and reweaves them into the musical present, repeatedly asking the question: “What if?”
Volume 1 has now arrived, released by Dutch Records and featuring three songs from different artists that have woven their influences into the DNA of High Pulp.
VOLUME 1 TRACKLIST:
- Journey in Satchidananda (Alice Coltrane)
- Astral Traveling (Pharaoh Sanders)
- There Are Other Worlds (Sun Ra)

About High Pulp
High Pulp is an instrumental, Seattle-based collective.
DO NOT CONSUME. IT WILL MAKE YOU SICK.
It all began in 2017 when High Pulp emerged from a weekly “Funk Church” jam session at Seattle’s historic jazz club The Royal Room. It was here that High Pulp’s founding members discovered one another. An inexplicable force pulled the collective together to produce the high-octane jazz, funk, hip-hop, punk, psychedelic cocktail that soon became their signature sound.
In 2019, High Pulp’s orbit collided with three well-known Seattle-based R&B/soul artists - JusMoni, Falon Sierra, and Shaina Shepherd (BEARAXE) - bringing vocalists into High Pulp’s extended musical family for the first time. Each of these artists joined in writing and recording a track with High Pulp, and together the three tracks formulate the Light Fix EP (released Fall 2019).
Now, the story continues with MUTUAL ATTRACTION, a series of three EPs released throughout 2020 in partnership with Portland-based Dutch Records.
"High Pulp answers the new millennium’s post-trip-hop, -indie, -ambient, -drum & bass, etc. contemporary with vinyl sharp grooves, macramé arrangements, and session-level instrumentation"
