Charles Rumback & Ryley Walker release new song ‘Menebhi’



Shortly ahead of the 8 November release of their new collaborative album Little Common Twist, Charles Rumback & Ryley Walker have released the single "Menehbi.” In contrast to "Half Joking," the album's more pastoral previous single, "Menebhi" pushes further into abstract forms, atomising guitar and drums into an ambient haze where loose flourishes from Rumback hint at rhythm and structure, while a steady electronic pulse provides an anchor amidst the fog. Ryley Walker will be touring worldwide throughout fall and winter, and Charles Rumback will be playing select shows across the midwest.

Little Common Twist is the culmination of a creative partnership that has seen Rumback and Walker constantly challenging each other. In stretching the bounds of their interplay even further than before, the duo created their most evocative and expansive work to date, conjuring the afterglow of sun-scorched landscapes and ethereal after-hours ambiance. Little Common Twist was recorded over several sessions throughout 2017 and 2018 with producer John Hughes. The guitar and drums duo eschewed each instrument’s traditional roles of rhythm and melody, experimenting with texture and rhythm.
