Tom Van Buskirk and George Langford have been living a rock and roll fantasy in New York. Signed to both David Byrne's Luka Bop Records and Thrill Jockey, their band Javelin is set to release a new album called Hi Beams on March 5 on Luka Bop. It's a step forward for Javelin, as the press material point out, because they're "using proper microphones, a vintage mixing desk, an array of amplifiers, real plate reverb - in the traditional sense a "studio album." Previous work had been cobbled together in home studios and mixed on computer." Which should make for an interesting experiment.

The band has been known in the past for its low powered FM broadcast shows, in which they stack boomboxes (affectionately called Boombatas) in pyramids and encourage audience members to bring boomboxes, creating a participation-oriented show. Their sound is an eclectic cut-and-paste workout of found sounds and music.
