“Thumbing through a stack of records, someone coming across the cover of Hectorina’s Muck for the first time may mistake it for a metal album. The black background with heavily stylized text, on top of the album name itself, project a very dark and dense image. Although the band flirts with some of the hallmarks of the genre, including heavy distortion and an emphasis on atmosphere, the latest album from the Charlotte trio is definitely more of a post-punk/experimental rock record.” – Mitchell Franklin, CLTure
Up/Dn (ensemble) is an art and music collective that defies categorization and blurs the lines of genre construct. Using audio and visual tools of organics and synthesis, the result conjuring a stirring a roux of inflection and sonic textures in an effort create a visceral experience for the beholder.
