Teach Me Equals' sound originates with wooden instruments and swells from that natural place to haunting, cataclysmic refractions of pop music with ease. At the heart of their debut, Knives in the Hope Chest, is Erin Murphy (guitar, violin, vocals) and Greg Bortnichak's (cello, sequencing, vocals) shared affinity for writing along the edges and exploring the limitations of their instruments Recorded to one-fourth tape and mixed/ mastered by Joel Nanos (Red Key, Mumford and Sons) the album inhabits a massive space, informed and educated equally by the DIY/Lo-Fidelity scene Bikini Kill, Unwound, Eric's Trip, the Microphones - and jazz/classical innovators, Teach Me Equals blend the minimalism of punk and modern composition with the epic expressions of Wagner and Coltrane.
