about

"Deaf Sharp" is the debut full-length from honeybrandy (Nathan McGlothlin & Joey Wright). The duo headed out to southern California to work with good buddy Chris Schlarb (Psychic Temple, Invisible Astro Healing Rhythm Quartet). For the single-day session, Schlarb connected honeybrandy with a pair of phenomenal horn & reed players & even sat in on electric guitar for a portion of the time.

The ascent from radio static full group engagement at the beginning of Side A ("Opportunity School") plays out like a retelling of early Godspeed You! Black Emperor. From there, organ & synth drones are paired with winding passages carved by lap steel, clarinet, sax, & trumpet. Additional layers meander near & far, with the result resembling a sonic tapestry more than a collection of songs. The album proper closes with a piece ("A Great Champion In Time Of Peril") that feels like a dream influenced by Sean Callery's score to "Homeland".

Described by Kris Tiner (trumpet) as "weightless, effortless, sensitive and transcendent music", this LP showcases a group of musicians working towards a sound that is greater than the sum of its parts.
