Thrill Jockey Records are happy to announce the new album ‘V‘ by Barn Owl (Jon Porras & Evan Caminiti). This record marks a shift in approach from the duo. The pair augmented their arsenal of guitars and effects with an array of electronics, vastly expanding the album’s sounds and textures. Special attention was given to implied rhythms nestled within dense slow building environments, giving album a rhythmic presence, albeit one that is buried beneath intricate layers. There’s a ghostly rhythm, almost beyond reach. Barn Owl recorded V with Phil Manley at LCR in their native San Francisco during summer of 2012. Working with electronics allowed the duo more freedom to create the album layer by layer, designing each sound and each section individually.
Watch the live video for the opening track ‘Void Redux’ which was filmed live at Thrill Jockey’s 20th Anniversary event in San Francisco last year.
