Tune in to hear about how the group works outside of the traditional rock n’ roll sound, helps create community in unconventional ways, and battle toxic masculinity.
Thor & Friends were inaugurated in the autumn of 2015 by Thor after five years of touring as the percussionist of iconic avant-rock ensemble Swans. The project is intended as a vehicle for experimentation with the conceptual vocabulary of American Minimalism collaborating with a rotating cast of Austin-based musicians. That cast now includes musicians from around the country. A crafter of musical instruments and stylistic polyglot Harris is returning home with Thor & Friends and the resultant music is an elongated greeting and ode to his community, his woodworking shop and the instruments his hands shape and bring to life.
