Tune in on Wednesday, May 22nd @ 8:30AM when DJ Hella Bent speaks with Liz Wendelbo & Sean McBride of Brooklyn based minimal synth duo, Xeno & Oaklander. Together, they will discuss the duo’s latest release, Hypnos, their musical influences, and Greek mythology.
As a musical act, Xeno & Oaklander conflate a rich love of analog synths, melody, and mythology with eloquent nuance and a nod to the heritage they draw from. McBride and Wendelbo’s artistic dynamic is more than just a mutual love for electronics but a contrast between architectural precision and painterly expression. From the film scores to the traditional albums they’ve recorded in their Brooklyn studio, they’ve both spurred and fostered the global synth wave revival through a commitment to analog-only production and performance as well as a strident respect for the medium.
