Nathan Bell (Lungfish) and Dave Heumann (Arbouretum) first started playing music together sometime after the start of '99 and definitely before the end of '01. It was soon apparent that they'd hit upon a winning combination - they found an unusual synergy of writing styles that has enabled them, at times, to compose a whole album's worth of songs together in the course of a leisurely afternoon. The style of music that they found themselves playing defies categorization, but has been described by listeners as containing aspects of minimalism, pre-war american blues/folk, and middle eastern and african music.
This is their debut self-released EP. The CDR comes in a chipboard CD folder and is silk screened on the front and back. Please note there are variations in the color of ink used, so each one is different.
Human Bell will release their debut full length album on Thrill Jockey on January 29th, 2008.
