Eaters, the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist composer Bob Jones and recording engineer and sound designer Jonathan Schenke is an adventure in juxtaposition. On the duos self-titled debut sprawling synth swells are punctuated by driving motorik grooves and screaming leads, relentless rhythmic sequences melt into viola drones and otherworldly textures, while fractured pop is enveloped by washes of white noise and spat back out again. Lyrics about love and life processed to the edges of humanity.

Such mercurial output is unexpected from two Brooklyn musicians with substantial indie-rock pedigrees. After all, Jones, a founding member of Eternal Tapestry, and Schenke, who has helmed records with Parquet Courts, Forest Fire, and Dirty Beaches, became friends while on tour with Frankie Rose. Jones' and Schenke's mutual love for early IDM, microtonal music and tape experimentation compelled them to eschew tradition and explore a no-expectations, process-oriented project that had less to do with being in a band and more to do with making new and interesting sounds.

Casually sophisticated and deliberately humorous, the push and pull of Eaters' dynamic spread satiates the palette.
