Trippers & Askers: “Keeping Watch” [PREMIERE]

Posted by on Jul 6, 2021

For thirteen years, Durham, North Carolina multi-instrumentalist Jay Hammond has rounded out and refined his rolodex of talented collaborators. Under the project title Trippers & Askers, the collective specializes in spacious, avant-garde arrangements, philosophical meditations in place of traditional lyrics, and psychedelic flourishes that beckon to be revisited.

Next Friday Trippers & Askers guides you through a reflection on the identity of “American music” with the LP, Acorn. Rest assured, Acorn is best experienced in its entirety, but you can crack into it early with some tasteful T&A on “Keeping Watch”!
