A few weeks ago, I received an email from a rep at Old Blackberryway Records about this group and its debut double-LP, Nathan. Inspired by an ever-changing line-up of musical participants, Nathan works in improvised bass-propped drones and tripped out Neu!'ish repetition. The group's lead member, Nate Nelson, (also of STNNNG) apparently worked with a total of 24 musicians by the time recording was finished.
|Nice Wire homage.|
The only other musician I can think of that comes close to pursuing this level of collaboration would be Josh Homme, both Queens of the Stone Age and his past Desert Sessions output the result of revolving line-ups and the varied ideas such an environment can provide and inspire.
Here are three tracks for your enjoyment. I'd recommend checking them out.
You can purchase the album here.
