Half Straddle Songbook at the New Museum

As part of their residency at the New Museum, Half Straddle are performing a live concert on Thursday. They will be performing selections for the much-anticipated COIL 13 show, Seagull (Thinking of you).

Giarmo’s compositions juxtapose plaintive vocals and piano-based pop with short, repetitive samples programmed into propulsive, rhythmic loops, while Satter’s lyrics combine willfully awkward non sequiturs with accessible and slyly subversive themes of innocent longing and defiant alienation.
