A favorite among Baltimore’s music scene since forming, Horse Lords has garnered fans locally, in the U.S. and abroad with an inventive ability to confound what listeners have come to expect from the combination of drums, bass and guitar (along with alto saxophone, electronics and other instruments). In the process, they’ve developed a funky, danceable sound that pulls from many directions — drone music, krautrock, Afro-beat, rap, rock ‘n’ roll and more — but is wholly theirs. -- Baltimore Sun
"The two compositions on New York-based artist Lea Bertucci’s All That Is Solid Melts Into Air are the product of the two spaces in which they were recorded: ISSUE Project Room’s 22 Boerum Place theater in downtown Brooklyn, and the cavernous main room of the Knockdown Center in Maspeth, Queens (both cornerstones of New York’s experimental music and performance communities). As an instrumentalist, Bertucci generally works with woodwinds, but here she composes and conducts for strings. These challenging, durational works tease a range of sounds and narratives out of these instruments, experimenting with how they resonate in the distinctive spaces in which they were recorded." -- Excerpt from Pitchfork
Angus Tarnawsky is a Tasmanian sound-artist and experimental musician living and working in-between Brooklyn NY and Vancouver BC. A dynamic percussionist, his work explores the interactions between acoustic and electronic elements. Through constant improvisation, precise yet unconventional rhythms overlap with heavy bass and ambient, glass-like textures. Each and every performance is unique and the outcome from one day to the next is hypnotic and unpredictable.
