Robert Comitz (known for playing in Olympia bands Hornet Leg and November Witch) and Erin Schmith (the two played together in the San Francisco duo Marriage + Cancer) moved to the Pacific Northwest with fellow musician Jheremy Grigsby. In Portland they joined forces with drummer Wiley Hickson (Total Bros.) and Nucular Aminals haven’t looked back since. Underneath Robert’s soothing delivery and flavorful guitar musings, the Aminals collective expertise reveals itself: Jheremy's bass stylings are the propulsive pace that holds the entire rhythmic canvas together like warm glue (I know, that sounds gross), Wiley plays the traps with youthful swing and sway, and Erin's fanciful fingerstrokes on the farfisa cuddle and purr. Here are selections from their debut album, Nucular Aminals [KLP233]:
