Bio

Pocket is the snappy moniker of LA-based Richard Jankovich, the principal creative mind behind the NY based electro-pop band Burnside Project and a seasoned big-name remixer (Beck, Radiohead, Kristin Hersh, Of Montreal, Elk City, Joanna Newsom and many others). We're happy to be presenting his debut LP on Tirk! It's a beautiful pop menagerie, fusing electronic beats & sounds, driven guitar tones, soaring guest vocals and sumptuously eclectic harmonies. The full-length LP "All Of This Happened" features Craig Wedren of Shudder To Think, Steve Kilbey of The Church, Tanya Donelly of Belly and Throwing Muses, Menomena's Danny Seim, the legendary Robyn Hitchcock, Dave Smalley of Dag Nasty, Down By Law and ALL, ex-The Lotus Eaters' Peter Coyle, Yuki Chikudate of Asobi Seksu, Mark Burgess of post-punk hero's The Chameleons, and Sal Principato, know for his extraordinary work with Liquid Liquid.
