The band is comprised of guitarist Jerry Adler (Wave Sleep Wave, the Blam, Flugente) and sitarist Mustafa Bhagat (Biryani Boys) and creates compelling, drone-heavy, experimental ambient sounds. “We call them ‘sonic ragas’” says Adler, quite fittingly, as a spin of the self-titled, four-cut disc reveals. To celebrate the release, the pair will perform on April 20 at Smolen Observatory on the SUNY New Paltz campus tonight at 7:30pm. The event is free.
