LNZNDRF is a new band composed of the National's Scott and Bryan Devendorf, as well as Beirut member and National/Sufjan collaborator Ben Lanz. LNZNDRF’s debut is rock minimalism meets sonic maximalism. Recorded in a church in Cincinnati over two and a half days, the eight songs on the album were improvised with a vital spirit harking back to the reason the members became musicians in the first place. The songs, which were edited from 30+ minute jams, evoke the essence of their expansive, largely improvised live shows.
The trio formed in 2011 in Auckland, New Zealand and will play select shows in London, New York, Berlin and Brussels in February and March.
