Anteloper is a duo of psychedelic sonic compatriots starring a pair of raggedy celestial sound warriors: trumpeter Jaimie Branch and drummer Jason Nazary. These longtime friends and collaborators met as young explorers and consider their electronic duo a continuous experiment into the unknown sonic abyss. Recent results have come back as mind-bendingly abstract head boppers, improvised organisms guided by a unique desire to hear what hasn’t been heard before. This is music made of and for the moment, tipping towards the future, moving feet to the new-new beat.

In May 2018, Branch took up a month-long residency at Pioneer Works, an art center down the street from her home in Red Hook, Brooklyn, with a recording studio attached. She called up Nazary, and he rolled by the studio loaded with acoustic drums, electronic triggers, modular FX unit, synths, sequencers, and a myriad of processors. Branch engineered the recordings, and brought her rig to the table: trumpet, synths, delay / looper pedal, auxiliary percussion, and a Roland TR08 drum machine. Then they did what they always do — rolled tape and started from nothing.

In the Fall of 2019, they set out for the Ante-Myths Sonic Projections Tour that took them across the US alongside DC duo Blacks’ Myths. For the journey, they self-produced a limited-edition tour tape, Tour Beats Vol. 1, with recordings from the Pioneer Works sessions. For Summer 2020, International Anthem is proud to re-present Anteloper’s Tour Beats Vol. 1 on 45RPM 12” vinyl in a package featuring artwork by Branch, photos by Richard R Ross, and liner notes as poem, again, by Rob Mazurek: “citing against the pricks, within sullen elastics, ecstatic pulse weft; new informal districts of time and energy…”
