RESONATE liner notes RESONATE thank you's RESONATE lyrics RESONATE play

The 9th album = IX

Made over two plus furious years of creating, then scrutinized, edited, refined and redone, all while being performed live over 100 times. At the beginning of this, we thought to do it differently; we were just passing around a mic to vocalize over the top of beats and ideas. Everyone had to add something, then pass the mic. Forced ideas gave life to new ideas, some percussive, some lingual, some noise. Most of these stayed in the final mix. Eventually, as evolution grows under the care of a scientist, most songs were discarded as "not good enough" while the best of the best were kept alive and tweeked. These tracks represent thousands of hours of work by four people, it is collaborative as it is tough to describe. We cannot wait to share this with you, and we are well aware that without anyone to listen, we are just shouting into the emptiness. We also cannot wait to play these out LIVE and in person for you.

The most we could hope for would be that you share this with others! If you like these tracks, share them as widely as possible and we will be eternally grateful.

Yes, really. Five tracks were inspired and written on the amazing Electro Harmonix 95000 looper. That's never happened before. This album could have been titled 95000.
