Xenosynchronicity II

Hinds, Killick & Henry Kaiser: Xenosynchronicity II (Self Released)

Label: Self Released    
Released in: USA    

"Four years. Four years since our last duo album. Henry Kaiser and I have each been quite prolific with our individual musical output during this interval. Filled with tons of inspiration to share, the stars aligned for us to work together again; we agreed we should not make "Nikola Tesla High School 2." (Though we both love "1.") So the Etch-A-Sketch was shaken empty, and a process developed to guide us through uncharted multiverses. Powered by kombucha and homemade quesadillas we played prismatic textures and moods, reflecting unabashed (ir)reverence for the styles and stylings of the greats, and for the guitar itself, simply strings tensioned across a board, but so, so much more. This was a very fun session sparklingly translated to 1s and 0s by our ears and heart Sandor. Please enjoy and thanks for listening."-Killick Hinds, July 2016
