Editorial Reviews

Billions of Phonographs is the first recording by the Instruments. It is a beautiful and brilliant record with entrancing folk melodies. Heather McIntosh, the band's songwriter, has been a staple of Athens music for years. She has been playing cello since she was very young and earned a degree in music from the University of Georgia. Heather quickly realized school was not enough of an outlet for her talents. She joined a punk band, Year Zero, in which she played bass. That lasted about a year, then she discovered performance art through Medaglia D'oro and Dixie Blood Mustache. She is currently a member of Japancakes, Circulatory System, Great Lakes and Dixie Blood Mustache. She also has played or recorded with bands such as Lil Wayne, Gnarles Barkley, and of Montreal.

Format: Audio CD
This is one of those albums that falls far below the radar screen of most listeners of contemporary music. Nonetheless, I would say that it is exceptional, and sounds quite similar to some of the best music done within the Elephant 6 collective. I do not, however, believe that the Instruments are in this collective. The few people that have heard "Billions of Phonographs" have mentioned that it has an Eastern European sound, and I would agree. Klezmer music also comes to mind. One of the very best things about this band, though, is that despite their folksy sound their sensibilities were developed in punk bands throughout the 1990s. Indeed, they seem to be looking forward, as most Elephant 6 type bands have done throughout the past few years. "Billions of Phonographs" stands as a remarkable album, one of the very best of 2002. I hope that more people will know about this band in 2003.
