having moved constantly since 1998, i have picked up bits and pieces of music influence, hardware and experience that have culminated in the current project, "a shrewdness of apes." originally, we were a purely lo-fi folk band until a long time love of hip-hop and its intrinsic experimentalism opened the sound up a bit. now samples and bits of found sound pop up in both the back- and fore-ground, mixing with skittering glitch beats as well as washes of ambience and the occasional burst of total nonsense. thanks for listening.
