Struggle in the Hive
Struggle in the Hive formed when Nigel Jeffrey (Radical Turf, Konrad) approached B Patric (Futureappletree,the Marlboro Chorus) about recording a few songs. Before long, they were collaborating and getting together once a week to record. Written in the studio, with ideas formed through interaction and experiment, this LP is the product of a year-long effort. Decidedly downbeat, the LP features primarily acoustic instruments, and was recorded on 8-track tape, with an ear toward simplicity and limitation. What results is an airy, intimate collection of songs dealing primarily with the human condition, our relationships with ourselves, and with each other...and our greater struggle.
