Tune in an Afternoon: Javelin

Publish date:

The resourceful Brooklyn duo makes a song from warped rip-off-artist cassettes.

Asking Javelin to do one of our Tune in an Afternoon episodes was a no-brainer. Cousins Tom Van Buskirk and George Langford are natural improvisers prone to mashing together found sounds on barely working boomboxes and magically turning them into timewarp dance hits that get stuck in your head for days. Here, we challenged Tom and George to make something catchy using only gear they had on tour and a handful of thrift-store cassettes. Download the result, "Me Thing Drawing Me" here.
