Skeletal System

Skeletal System

 San Francisco, California, USA

"It's strange to think of something arriving, without warning, quite as perfectly formed as this. No label involvement, no svengali. Sound[s] like Galaxie 500 reformed and signed to Hyperdub." - 20 Jazz Funk Greats


Having first met as neighbors in Chicago, Andy and Brian discovered immediately that the two had a similar appreciation for music. But an appreciation was all it would be for some years. Eventually the two found themselves in San Francisco and decided to start making music on their own.

After experimenting with a larger group, the two pared back and focused on creating a large, dark and textured sound. Skeletal System quickly jumped into the San Francisco bay area live scene, developing a compelling mix of live electronics, song craft, and post-punk guitar. 2010 has seen Skeletal System steadily gain momentum, starting with the release of their self-recorded EP and regular live sets in California.

In July, the s/t EP was named by Pitchfork's new Altered Zones blog as one of the best of 2010 so far. Late 2010 will see the release of the Small Talk / Static Eyes single and work has begun on first LP.
