Javelin’s self-released LP, entitled Jamz n Jemz, is but one element of Tom van Buskirk and George Langford’s DIY approach to art and performance. The first label release, featuring silkscreened thrift store sleeves, the live performance often assisted be a twenty boom-box ’soundsystem’ to help transmit strange frequencies, and the layered, intricate, sample-based tracks, are all testament to Javelin’s commitment to quality and detail. The finely crafted collection of lost rhythms and eccentric bits of crate-dug sounds remind the listener of nostalgic nights toying with the radio dial, while warmly assuring us that the art of sampling is very much alive and well.
