'A&R' is a collection of intricate singles, ordered in pairs, on the band's own label, TNTS Records. These five Chicago natives are a makeshift, genre-bending orchestra. Elaborating on live loops, drones, & samples, The Names That Spell create a very high noise to noisemaker ratio while pursuing cathartic interwoven harmonies. This is an album about Superted, Orange Juice, Marinated Ukuleles, Baptisms, Sea Cucumbers, & Sea Urchins. Touch it.
