Portland duo Brandon Summers and Benjamin Weikel are a unique kind of quiet legend in American indie rock. Across their 6 albums and over 15 years together they have reinvented themselves time and again as metronomic, guitar-and-drum-centric rockers, spacious and synth-infused electropop dreamers, shoegaze-y acoustic strummers, and just about every combination therein. A quick peak into their arsenal would reveal everything from analog synths to harmonicas, and these fellas have production chops to boot. In this special collaboration with Marmoset Music, Brandon and Benjamin reimagined music dating back over 100 years. And the results are every bit as fascinating as you'd expect.
