Richie Townsend paired up with Hannah McDaniel in June 2014 to create this experimental instrumentalist project, resulting in what Townsend describes as a sound that matches “old-school guitar self-indulgence” with “post-rock heaviness.” Townsend and McDaniel both play electric guitar, with McDaniel also playing drums. The duo has at times been a trio; Townsend says they “go through bass players like Spinal Tap goes through drummers.” Using experimental and ambient sounds to engage the listener, they produce a kind of noise-rock that is radically different from their solo work. “We’d like for people to walk away feeling like they participated in creating our music,” Townsend says. “We also want their ears to be ringing so they’ll remember us.”
