Along with other mesmeric uses of strings, they come in and out of the shoreline sands of synth like low tide. – Charles Steinberg, Under The Radar
Under The Radar magazine goes in for a deep dive with Nick Zinner, the composer of Jennifer Reeder’s new thriller, Knives And Skin! And if that name sounds familiar, he is indeed that Nick Zinner, the guitarist of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

A must-read!
