Sounds of Secret Stages 2015 #7: Coupler

One of these years, by heaven, I'll make it down to Birmingham for Secret Stages. Sadly, it won't be this year, so once again I'll be missing out on the great lineup the festival folks have put together for the fifth iteration of this special event. Nevertheless, your lady friend has done some scoping out of the lineup, and of course I have some recommendations. If you're doing Secret Stages, check these folks out. If you're not, check 'em out anyway!

The "deliberate ambient" music of Coupler is an interesting thing to behold. A recently expanded solo project of Lambchop's Ryan Norris, the noises made by Coupler incorporate tension and release through the outfit's cacophony of droning dirges and other engaging electronic elements.
