Record Info:

Andy Stack and Jay Hammond’s Inter Personal is a record of seven meditative electro-acoustic duo improvisations. The tone of the record straddles two worlds — one of glitchy synthesizers and pointillistic drums, and the other of languid, lyrical guitar and droning organ pedals. Each piece is a conversation between two old friends, in a language that draws equally upon electronic, ambient, Americana, Krautrock, and jazz sensibilities. Inter Personal will be released June 9th, 2023 on Sleepy Cat Records.
