Charlottesville, VA duo Grand Banks dial in resonances from across space and time, building a sonic world that’s equal parts earth-rattling drones and delicate cosmic lullabies. Turn up the volume and feel the space around you sing as far-out harmonics shift in and out of focus. Recorded to reel-to-reel nearly 15 years ago, "QB4: 1877-1896" betrays a bookishly nostalgic sensibility: sunbeams in a dusty attic, the smell of old paperbacks, long conversations with old friends.
Grand Banks is Davis Salisbury and Tyler Magill. This album was recorded in varying degrees of desperation while adjacent to the Pudhouse (RIP), c. 21st Century CE.
