ABOUT

The sound is like if St. Vincent and Wilco had a baby, and when that baby grew up, they got really into funk (Funkadelic, Isley Brothers, Earth, Wind, & Fire), hip-hop (Kanye, Danny Brown, Tribe), and country rock (like Gram Parsons, The Byrds, Neil Young, and Father John Misty).

EQUIPMENT

I play Telecasters, because of Curtis Mayfield and Bruce Springsteen, but mostly because of Prince and Thom Yorke. I love weird Vox amps and have a few. I have a vintage Rogers drum kit. And a pretty well-worn Squier P-Bass.
