"Masters at soundscapes and weirdness... To have just the two of them playing off one another, riding a mood out as simply as possible, has a pure sense of beauty to it worth cherishing." -- Nextbop
"Wires is an extraordinary collection of works that show both mastery of the genre it works in while also defying these styles’ traditional formulas." -- Heavy Blog is Heavy
Austin experimental music duo Horne + Holt share two tracks from their forthcoming album Wires today. Heavy Blog Is Heavy showcases "The Thin Invisibility of Wires" HERE, while Nextbop features "In Need of Rescue, Strings Attached" HERE. (Direct Bandcamp HERE.)
Horne + Holt is the instrumental duo of experimental guitarist Jonathan F. Horne and classically-trained cellist Randall Holt. Both are members of Knest with drummer/percussionist Thor Harris and further developed their sound while he was away on tour. Looking to capture their early development, the resulting combination of composition & improvisation, Wires, is Horne + Holt's debut collection of expressionistic soundscapes and emotive tone poems.
Recorded at Thee Mighty Hotel2Tango in Montreal, Quebec, with Efrim Menuck (Godspeed You! Black Emperor; Silver Mt. Zion) on the soundboard and mastered by Jerry Tubb at Terra Nova Digital Studio in Austin TX, Wires is the sound of two friends effortlessly shredding and a fresh take on new music & collaboration.
