  • Availability:

This is a collaborative album released by American guitarists Duffy x Uhlmann, who have played together as backing band members of Perfume Genius and Hand Habits, on the Chicago indie label Orindal Record in September 2023.

Contains 2 songs from ambient folk to ambient jazz improvised by two guitars. Comes with DL code.

Below is an explanation by Rosie Stockton.

"Duffy x Uhlmann blur the line between speed and slowness, aiming for each other's horizons while taking on each other's peaks and flurries and communicating with speed. These one-take improvisations were borrowed from Uhlmann's brother's house. Their constant motif is a constant return, knowing that if one wanders in, the other will either chase him or be called home. It's a steady, committed pulse, where fluidity takes precedence over order, each note passing by like initials carved into the bark of a tree.

After stints with Perfume Genius and Hand Habits, Duffy x Uhlmann embarked on their first collaboration, Doubles.They hold guitars, and their musical intimacy is expressed without words.
They embrace their intuition and rely on trust to weave sonic meditations. Side A of Doubles consists of a conversation between two guitars.Looping emotions, weaving sounds, kissing, and completing each other's sentences.There's no dubbing or editing on the final track, and the immediacy of the songwriting makes it feel like we're in the room with them.

The A-side establishes a glittering intimacy, while the B-side is a scraped-up tone that borrows from the sounds they've played together over the past year's tour.The second half of this album, which uses the self as its material, dismantles the presence of Side A in order to incorporate the tactility of memory.Using samples from his travels and around the world, these songs are a glued scrapbook of memories.When I listen to it, I can feel the crunch and stillness of existing in the world mediated by time.

Developing and maintaining a true presence in any given moment is one of the most difficult things to do.When it is offered, I cherish it like a precious gift.As I listen to this album, I surrender to the generosity of Duffy x Uhlmann.

The intimacy in these songs dances like shadows.I want to carry this music in my pocket, in the palm of my hand like a well-worn stone.They give a sweet rawness.It lingers even after the song ends, and hits you the moment the words disappear. "

"Blurring the limits between speed and slowness, Meg Duffy (guitar) and Greg Uhlmann (guitar) communicate in velocities, underwriting each other's peaks and flurries as they ache toward a mutual horizon. recorded in Uhlmann's brothers' house on a borrowed tape Recorder, unfold like a game of truth or dare. motif is an unceasing return, a steady heartbeat they mutually commit to, knowing when one wanders off, the other will either follow or call them home. note saunters by like initials etched into tree bark: a devotion both passing and eternal.

After playing in Perfume Genius and Hand Habits, Duffy and Uhlmann embarked on their first record together, Doubles. testament to the wordlessness of their musical intimacy, Duffy and Uhlmann take up the guitar in order to make an imprint of the slowness and presence of their improvisational practice. They weave together a sonic meditation, embracing intuition and relying on trust. Side A of Doubles consists of two guitars in conversation: looping feelings, braiding sounds, blowing kisses, and finishing each other's sentences. Less of an echo and more of nod, the songs unfold in radical, mutual witnessing. Refraining from any over dubs or edits on the final tracks, the immediacy of the compositions makes it feel like we are in the room with them.

Where Side A establishes a glistening intimacy, Side B takes on the tone of sonic scavenging, incorporating sounds from their past year of touring together. Taking the self as source material, the second half of the album dismantles the presence of Side A in order to incorporate the tactility of memory. Using samples from the road and from the world, these compositions are a scrap book of glued and chopped up sound. When I listen, I feel the crunchiness and static of being-in-the-world as it is mediated by time. Without us knowing, our devices capture sounds we may have missed the first time around. And they land like a sucker punch, snapping us back to the present, tuning our attention to what surrounds us.

True presence in any given moment is one of the most difficult things to cultivate and sustain. When it is offered, I treasure it like a rare gift. Listening to Doubles, I sink into the generosity of Duffy and Uhlmann's offerings. Glacial Fanfare,” I whisper to myself: it hurts now and it's gonna hurt more, but then it's gonna stop hurting. In “Euphoric Recall,” I understand how even the worst storms can offer gentleness. is about bodies in contact, feet hitting the ground day after day. I return to the urgent question posed in the title of the track: “Which One Is You?” The answer is a low steady bass marked by chaotic and bright fluctuations of sound . The sonic response leaves me knowing: Both. All.

The intimacy in these songs dances like shadows - providing relief even as they slip away. I want to put this music in my pocket and hold it in my palm like a worn down stone. Duffy and Uhlmann give us a sweet rawness that reverberates even once the song is over, hitting the body the very moment words fall away."
