New release on Kye: "Sunday Night, Sunday Afternoon" is the debut LP by the duo of Marcia Bassett and Samara Lubelski. Both musicians have played crucial roles in the development of underground sound over the last 20 years, tinting the broad waters of abstract folk, chromatic noise and longform drone, and cementing themselves as cornerstone artists in the process. "Sunday Night, Sunday Afternoon" is the perfect synthesis of Bassett and Lubelski's individual crafts - two sidelong forays into deep black string meditation that hang in the air like ghosts on Ludlow Street. "Sunday Night, Sunday Afternoon" was recorded/mixed by Barry Weisblat in 2010 in Brooklyn, NY, edition of 500 copies.

Collaboration with Margarida Garcia
Garcia and Bassett first collaborated in a group working with sound, text and light projections. Other members of the group included Mattin, Emma Hedditch and Jeffery Perkins. Through these early meetings, Bassett and Garcia recognized a similar sonic aesthetic. Further meetings of the two have lead to handful of shows and "The Well" LP release on Headlights.
