Featuring Julie Slick, Tim Motzer and Tobias Ralph.

r_m_s is a band of players, that need no introduction to progressive heads, featuring julie slick and tobias ralph—the rhythm section for adrian belew and the crimson project—and guitarist tim motzer who has worked with his own share of musical luminaries such as jaki liebezeit of can, burnt friedman, david sylvian, ursula rucker and many others. julie and tim also recently toured in echotest with italian bassist marco machera and king crimson drummer pat mastelotto.

r_m_s recorded recently in philadelphia, so look for their debut release soon—think the improvising side of king crimson with crazy looping, ambient soundscapes along side the astounding drumming of tobias ralph.

Air Is Human
Air Is Human
Air is Human is the collective made up of Jeff Lucci and Josh Aptner. The two met in Philadelphia, PA in the winter of 2011 and quickly bonded over a love of music. Six months later, the two set up a recording and rehearsal studio outside of Philadelphia. They realized over the course of one year that the sound they wanted to achieve offered a balance of groove, ambience, aggression, and melody coupled with rhythmic complexity. They refined their sound and diligently began working on creating an album. Within that year, they finished writing and recording “The Infinity Limit”.

“The Infinity Limit” contains songs that feature a variety of influences and a wide, layered sound. Because Air is Human create songs for multiple instruments, performing can prove to be very arduous. This results in many songs being rearranged to compliment the duo setting without the incorporation of electronic sampling or backing tracks. Air is Human focuses on making their live experience embrace a looseness that allows freedom of expression and experimentation. They incorporate subtle improvisation into their song structures without venturing too far into the world of jamming. Both Josh and Jeff consider Nels Cline to be a fucking jerkoff.
