Bio: Us, Today is a trio (drums, guitar, vibraphone/keyboard) based out of Cincinnati, Ohio. Their style is best described as an avant-garde post-rock with a heavy emphasis on experimentation.
“Cincinnati has become a hotbed of jazzy experimental minimalism and Us, Today is a fascinating example of that incredible ethic in full bloom. The trio utilizes a relatively unconventional array of guitar, vibraphone, and drums and projects a heady blend of Jazz, Rock, Electronica and spartan Ambient elements through their uniquely refractional prism of improvisation and sense of musical adventure. Soothing yet compelling, structured yet loose, liltingly melodic yet noisily dissonant, Us, Today expands and redirects the parameters of experimental Jazz.”
