Dysrhythmia have established themselves as one of the finest instrumental bands in the world. Masters of their craft, Dysrhythmia make the standard rock (guitar, bass, drums) setup sound like a symphony and complex, innovative music sound easy. On Barriers and Passages, the trio raises the bar once again with their exceptional playing and unwavering dedication to forward-thinking song craft. Time signatures bend and shift intuitively. Rich washes of melody and layers of noise are the voices that punctuate crisp musical constructions. Engineered by Martin Bisi (Sonic Youth, Dresden Dolls, Swans, Helmet, Brian Eno), Barriers and Passages is Dysrhythmia's tour de force.
