In their home laboratory, cousins Tom van Buskirk and George Langford of Javelin conduct strange sound experiments, feeding snippets of hip-hop, lost vinyl nuggets, and newly unearthed audio clips into a massive sonic collider.
The result: A series of increasingly legendary 12" records, mixtapes, CDs, and podcasts that completely confuse human ears, especially when recreated live via boombox towers of ever-growing proportions.
