MK for president
We first connected with Michael Kammers (MK) in 2013 when his driving track BAD BRAINS became the stand strong anthem here at the fake office. In between a variety of gigs with the likes of Antibalas and Bobby Previte, and his regular weekends at The Mckittrick Hotel, Michael brings us the most unusual and compelling recorded music. For the history check out Live At Studio BPM, and then dig right in on the second volume of his latest project with The Brothers Nylon. MK and the twins are set up yet again in their unintentionally nomadic studio - Electric Windowland, teasing the vibration of the universe with Analog Spirit Quest Vol 2 - three new tracks recorded to 1/4 inch tape on a Tascam 388 eight track mixing board. The lead track, CLOTH OF GOLD, will transport you past time and space. Just lean back and believe.
Cloth Of Gold
Analog Spirit Quest V2
MK and the Brothers Nylon are at it again, recording ASQ V2 to 1/4 inch tape on their coveted Tascam 388. Beginning at Electric Windowland and crossing over to the new spot at Charles Bronxin' Studios, Michael Kammers, Michael Rufolo, and Nick Rufolo are joined by guests Lisa McQuade, Neeraj Mehta, and Chris Kuklis for a journey in experimental analog sound. This is serious music, so set aside some time and get the headphones on. Drop in here for the lead single.
Celebrating 2015 - Michael Kammers
Unpredictably predictable - While we never know what to expect from bandleader, composer, and (mainly) Sax player Michael Kammers (MK), we DO know that he will hit us with something adventurous and strange. This year he took THE BROTHERS NYLON on an ANALOG SPIRIT QUEST and recorded a 4 song EP entirely on a TASCAM 388. It’s a time bender in every way - get lost right here, and get up with MK here.
The Brothers Nylon & MK (7/24/15)
What happens when your TASCAM 388 is on the fritz? You call the twins - Nick and Michael Rufolo (AKA The Brothers Nylon) and they fix it, dropping an entire EP of analog sounds in the process. Michael Kammers (MKGO) took the project from start to finish with the twins and some special guests, recording everything on the quick to capture each creative moment. The result - Analog Spirit Quest Vol 1: a retro-futuristic jam that sounds like time stretched through space the MK way. Dig it here, support spontaneous ART.
