Hi guys!!

Great compositions! Absolutely love the sounds! Both the drums and guitar are very unique sounding and of course your arrangements are also very unique and interesting to listen to.


Do you mind if I ask about your instruments? I would be curious as both a a guitarist and secondly a drummer what gear you're using...:)

Just had a chance to quickly browse through a few tunes. I like what you guys are doing a lot!

It's really nice to hear the clean guitar and unhyped drums playing this sort of music. 'Math rock' has become so much about over the top drum production and massive pedalboards. I love that you two just sound like two people making music together.

I like it! The style reminds me a bit of Plini but more minimalist. Great music!

First time I was listening and didn't notice that only two persons are playing :). Super! Band meditation :)

Thanks guys for the nice feedback. It was our goal exactly to create a "in the room with the band"-feeling. We recorded only live sessions and did very little overdubbing, which cost us hours in failed attempts.
The setup is very simple.
Guitar: fender telecaster , orange dark terror amp, a modest pedalboard ( basically only looper, reverb, distortion) and a nondescript cabinet thrown together by some guy we bought it cheaply from. We revorded with the eternal sm57
drums: Very nice Quality but small. Basically a superb jazz kit. Pearl Masters custom Maple 18" BD and 14" FT + a 14" Pearl brass snare, 14" Ufip hi-hat and 21" ride. Recorded with stereo overhead, BD micand two mics in different configurations for snare and floor tom.
Our recording room is very big ,so we could shape the sound with absorbers and recorded with a nice room mic.
Midrange Focusrite Interface directly recorded into ardour. Everything done with basic plugins, mostly the calf suite. We are pretty bad at the audio engineering part :)

hope that helps! And thanks again.
