We Are The World’s Robbie & Megan breach hyperreal territory with their new project DREAMERS. It’s both menacing and nurturing. For Hecuba’s new album MODERN, Jon and Isabelle went into isolation, shaved their eyebrows, and removed their identities to see what was underneath. Now they’ve joined forces to create a label that goes to infinity and jumps right off the edge.

Have you heard much post-minimalism by Philip Glass? It’s all separation and dissection, one moment in time isolated and distributed across space. A premise gets broken into its simplest parts. (Check out David Ives’ play, Philip Glass Buys A Loaf Of Bread.) An occurrence becomes a sentence then dissolves into syllables, and inherently breaks further still, until we arrive at the absolute of precision: beats. Glass would love Hecuba’s debut album Paradise. He’d want to slice it into a million pieces and decorate a tree with it.
