Descrizione

With a blast of creative energy fueled by an enthusiasm for making music together, a stellar combination of Athens, Georgia musicians formed SUPERCLUSTER, the brainchild of PYLON vocalist Vanessa Hay and Hannah Jones of THE NEW SOUND OF NUMBERS. Spanning the history of Athens music from the early days of the B-52's and R.E.M. to the present, SUPERCLUSTER is a collaborative effort, featuring the talents of members of PYLON, THE OLIVIA TREMOR CONTROL/CIRCULATORY SYSTEM, DEERHUNTER, CASPER & THE COOKIES, THE NEW SOUND OF NUMBERS / SOUND HOUSES, INSTRUMENTS/GNARLS BARKLEY/LIL' WAYNE, and BOB HAY & THE JOLLY BEGGARS/ SQUALLS.

Descriptions of SUPERCLUSTER's music range from trance/dance to "Appalachian Wave," due in no small part to an eclectic combination of elements - three female vocalists, upbeat rhythms, violin, cello, mandolin, clarinets, acoustic guitar, keyboard, and angular electric guitar.

"Waves" showcases the talent of recording member Heather McIntosh on three songs. McIntosh is best known for her performances with her own group INSTRUMENTS,as well as GNARLS BARKLEY and LIL' WAYNE. Bryan Poole is a long-time member of OF MONTREAL. Although Bryan does not play on the CD "Waves", he made his first appearance as a member of the group when SUPERCLUSTER opened for the B-52's in Mableton, Georgia in August 2009 and is now a recording member of the project. Both Bryan and Heather have performed live with Supercluster when their schedules permit. Damon Denton, classical pianist, performed with Supercluster at REM 30, birthday tribute and may perform locally with the "cluster" when his schedule permits as he did at Athens Popfest and is on standby for recording when Supercluster resume studio work later this year.

The new CD, Waves, is one of the last documents of the guitar skills of Randy Bewley from PYLON, who passed away in February 2009. Bradford Cox, native Athenian and member of Atlanta band DEERHUNTER and a longtime fan of PYLON, stepped in to help SUPERCLUSTER finish the recording. The CD was recorded and mixed at Bel Air Studios by producer Jason NeSmith of CASPER & THE COOKIES. NeSmith also assisted in laying down guitar tracks and now performs live with the band on a regular basis.

In drawing from the support and love of the Athens music community, SUPERCLUSTER band members feel that Waves is, as Julie Phillips wrote in the Athens Banner-Herald, "a testament not only to Bewley's talent, but to the unit of the group as a whole, now without Bewley." As one example, the final recorded track on the CD came from a group jam that Bradford Cox suggested the band try while Jason NeSmith was preparing the studio for recording another song. Even without Bewley, the imaginative, playful side of the group continues to emerge.
