"Week in Pop"

"An avant-pop anthem from the grandchildren of Elephant 6. The déCollage aesthetic is presented like a kaleidoscope soaking up all the solstice rituals & revelry where the group keeps all matters mystical & upbeat. Keeping the vibe spirited & DIY; Denver’s aesthetic daredevils bring about a kind of natural liberation of the body, mind, spirit & self in a holistic way that many of us outside of the mile-high-city are just now beginning to comprehend." - Impose Magazine


"Zammuto to play Moon Magnet's CD release party at Lost Lake"

"Moon Magnet is a hive for artists to experiment making new flavors of honey and the energy here facilitates a spirit of endless possibilities. We want to inspire other people to try new things. You can do anything with practice, barriers are mostly mental." ~ Reed Fuchs - AXS


"Premiere: "Crystal Choir""

Somewhere between the Flaming Lips and Black Moth Super Rainbow. It gives you all the feelings of hearing “Do You Realize?” for the first time.” It features Future Eyes, Ancient Elk, and members of Wild High, Sound of Ceres, The Other Black, Set Sail, & more. - Surviving The Golden Age


"15 Must-See Bands"

One of the most unique sets I’ve ever witnessed came from déCollage. With costumes, lights, fog machines, and shiny mylar galore, you won’t be able to stop your body from moving. - Bolder Beat


"Indulge your Senses in Sound: déCollage Sounds Like Salvador Dali Smells"

Truly, déCollage are about indulging all the senses in their live performances, not just providing aural entertainment. For this reason, they will be releasing their new record in a very interactive, synesthesia-inducing format, where the listener can manipulate the songs. - Culture Magazine


"Psycholodge EP Review"

Producer Reed Fuchs, who recorded, mixed and mastered the entire project, seems to be quite literally making a collage of psych with his team of cosmic explorers. Weaving together a vast array of genres into a tapestry of sounds heavy on experimental psych. The release was through Moon Magnet’s Lunadrifter custom app, which couples the ambient, spacey songs with equally visually out-there fractals and heady images that the user/listener can manipulate sonically and optically on the fly. - Marquee Magazine


"Seven of Denver's Most Underrated Bands"

The fusion of surrealistic psychedelia akin to of Montreal with playfully colorful childlike myth-making makes this band's shows feel magical and otherworldly but grounded. - Westword


"Psyched out: Denver’s Flaural and déCollage are sick of your labels, man"

While the band has psych-rock tendencies, it strives to push sonic boundaries by making art imitate life. Fuchs takes sounds from the world around him, even at breakfast. Yes, the grinding of coffee makers or the stirring of oatmeal can be made into a mind-bending soundscape. Fuchs’ experimental vision inspired the new “Lunadrifter” app, a trippy mobile game that allows fans to interact with déCollage’s upcoming “Psycholodge” EP. Gamers can choose a song and manipulate it using various filters or effects. This creates a wildly colorful kaleidoscopic vortex that they can share with friends. - Denver Post's: Hey Reverb


"Psycholodge EP by déCollage (Moon Magnet)"

déCollage continues to transform the visual world of mixed media into a delightful audio world of surrealist avant-pop. déCollage uses unexpected instruments in their musical compositions: a tea strainer, dustpan percussion, wine glasses, and a few audio samples of JFK. A typewriter clicks away rhythmically for the beat of the first track, “Gotta Good Thing Going Pt 1.” - UCD Advocate

Bio

If Salvador Dali’s paintings were music, they would sound like déCollage. Formed in 2009 by Moon Magnet Studio’s ringleader, Reed Fuchs, déCollage is hardly a four-piece, as over 20 of Denver’s most creative musicians chose to participate, including members of Rose Quartz, Sound of Ceres/Candy Claws, Rubedo and many more. On May 27th déCollage released their third full length on Misra Records/Sub Pop Licensing, it peaked at #16 on the CMJ Radio Electronic charts (and charted #20-35 for 5 weeks). It's what Impose Magazine describes as "A kaleidoscopic avant-pop anthem from the grandchildren of Elephant 6." Their shows are theatrical, free-spirited parties; interactive to the point the audience gets doused in space blankets while transcendental artists paint on stage. People dress up for their shows and a giant oyster made by one of Flaming Lips & Miley Cyrus's costume designers, Natalie Wetzel, dance in the crowd with a slew of other costumes. déCollage has played alongside the likes of Animal Collective, of Montreal, and Deerhoof. Their eclectic Psych Pop incorporates accordion, glockenspiel, etc, over a canvas of found sounds Reed records {typewriters, trains, leaves, zippers, oatmeal, circuit bending}. Reed’s lyrics navigate our fragmented, post-modern world through metaphysics, surrealism, abstraction, and most of all wonder! déCollage is interested in sounds for their own sake; in this way their music is World, the world of sound, the world’s sound.
