Del Bel spent about a year and a
half recording their debut album. It began as a personal recording
project of Tyler Belluz, evolved into a collective of players ranging
from all types of disciplines, and finally morphed into the live band it
is today. Stylistically Del Bel embodies an eerie cinematic sound
infused with darkened soul and surf rock qualities.
Inspired heavily by the work of legendary Nigerian musician Fela
Anikulapo-Kuti, Minotaurs take the funky, slinky backbone of Afro-beat
and apply it to the indie-rock-folk songs of Nathan Lawr. Its propulsive
rhythms and syncopated horn arrangements are catchy, inspiring, and
mind-boggling funky all at once.
writes songs as a staging ground for collaboration with other musicians.
They are punk rock songs that don’t often sound like punk rock songs. A
communion in an alienating world. Steve runs You’ve Changed Records in
collaboration with Daniel Romano and is a former member of the
Poster by Derek Ma.
