From Chicago to Baltimore, from basement studio to live performance, the duo of April Camlin and Al Schatz have continued to develop their rhythmic/hypnotic music. Each of the six tracks on their new album "Maintain" are their own sparkling aural future city. These basement .WAVs capture the duo at work on their constructions, never losing their forward momentum. Songs build, swerve, decline, increase and decrease. Analog layers are added like architectural motifs to the underlying sturdy, steady pulse. Live, the crowd can't help but be caught up, taking the ride, toes tapping, swaying, and swinging.
