about

"Savor the grape flavor. We're very proud of you, Steve. You will grow up to accomplish mighty things."

As the second major release by Picnic Day, Grape looks to simplify track usage as well as sound textures. Overall, the album provides a Grape-like flavor of crunchy gypsy jazz to its audience at a time when the audience remains unaware of picnics and the sort. Grape is both a culmination of instrumental experimentation forged over a period of years (probably two or something, get over it) as well as the usual improvisation the fans have grown to love; the improvisation this time lending to structure found in repeated improvisation.

As a sublet concept to the album, Steve Buscemi is staged as a Sandusky spokesperson who suffers from an unknown seizure disorder. The album loosely follows a week in Buscemis' life in Sandusky while there to experience Six Flags one last time. During his time in Sandusky, Steve continuously falls into psychotic breaks and enjoys some grape ice cream.
