Karneef makes songs in a very loose style, on a laptop. Some say jazz, some say pop; who cares. He plays all the instruments on his new album Musique impossible, like Stevie did in 1978 on Innervisions. Sort-of like Zappa’s Synclavier album Jazz from Hell, but less rigid. When he isn’t writing long songs about boats or abandonment, he produces albums for artists like Pascale Project, or Dylan III, and eats in restaurants a lot.
Naytronix is the alter ego of multi instrumentalist Nate Brenner who spent much of the past four years touring the world as bassist for the mighty tUnE-yArDs. His second full-length, Mister Divine, was released in 2015 on City Slang.
