Notes and Editorial Reviews

R WE WHO R WE, featuring composer/performers TED HEARNE (vocals) and PHILIP WHITE (mixer feedback), reimagine, dissect and radically reconstruct the “cover album” with the release of their first (eponymous) album. The recording features the duo’s versions of several hits from the pop world -- some iconic, some ephemeral -- refracted through their irreverent, experimental lens that is equally informed by their backgrounds in avant garde classical music and underground electronic music. The result straddles the line between ironic commentary on contemporary pop anthems and innovative dance tracks in their own right, all generated with the sparest of musical materials, but producing an impressively broad expressive range.

Listening to Ted Hearne and Philip White’s R We Who R We is a bit like attempting to force the beaters of an electric hand mixer through one’s nostrils and into the brain, then flipping the power on…and this is an unequivocally good thing... The result is something eminently, if weirdly, danceable and utterly gripping.
