"is Variations" which is not technically released, but available.



One day I, Justin Bard, finally decided to read philosophy on my own. So I started with eastern philosophy. That was quick and easy. So I put the books down and started writing and writing and writing. Early recordings were done in 2006 in my parents basement on a 4-track. Then the songs grew and grew so I dumped everything onto a beat-up office computer, pushing it to the limits. Two years later and a ton more life-altering events, a thick and heavy record was finished. A tired soul could finally rest.

Hunter Gatherer is a culmination of the influences I have acquired over the years: Brian Eno, Boris, Akron Family, The Microphones, ISIS, Do Make Say Think, DJ Shadow, Radiohead. I have played in numerous bands, but never really making it out of the general circumference of Western Massachusetts. The skeleton of Hunter Gatherer is "is Variations." The muscle and flesh are being added as we speak. Adam Kozak and Andy Kivela provide the flesh needed to present a live experience, but I also like to go at it alone.
