Eaters LP out now on Driftless Recordings / Dull Tools
Eaters – the self-titled brainchild of multi-instrumentalist and composer Bob Jones and recording engineer and sound designer Jonathan Schenke – is an adventure in juxtaposition. Sprawling synth swells are punctured by driving motorik grooves and screaming leads, relentless rhythmic sequences melt into viola drones and otherworldly oohs and ahhs. Fractured pop is enveloped by washes of white noise and spat back out again, as lyrics about love and life are processed to the edges of humanity.
Casually sophisticated and deliberately humorous, the push and pull of Eaters’ dynamic spread is surprisingly satiating.
Catch Eaters on tour now with Shabazz Palaces (full dates listed below).
“The Brooklyn duo of recording engineer Jonathan Schenke and multi-instrumentalist Bob Jones have lovingly brought to life an album that pays tribute to a range of stylistic ventures, all of which were considered much more “out” when they first arrived than in today’s gluttonous, self-cannibalizing music scene…” – Interview Magazine
“The textures on Eaters are beautiful: Grim and subdued but so rich you could raise tomatoes in them.” – Pitchfork
“Eaters devour the brooding affectations and disaffected styles that some attempt to distill and market…” – Impose
