Algorithm of Desire
Algorithm of Desire is both a testimonial as well as an expression of shared human experiences. Lyrically the songs question the truth behind desire, especially in the age of technology when our wants and needs are algorithmically determined. “Well, after all, what if someday they really do discover the formula for all our desires and whims…that is, the genuine mathematical formula–why, then all at once man might stop desiring, yes, indeed, he probably would. And that’s not all: he would immediately be transformed from a person into an organ stop or something of that sort; because what is man without desire, without will, and without wishes if not a stop in an organ pipe?” (Fyodor Dostoevsky, “Notes from Underground”) These songs place listeners in alternate realities asking them to contemplate the various dimensions of connection while diverting them from a reality where art has lost value and consumerism and technology drive preference.

Sames Waves is Lindsay Anderson and John Hughes. Hughes first crossed paths with Anderson in 2002 when she recorded vocals for Telefon Tel Aviv’s 12” single, “Sound In A Dark Room” which would appear on his Hefty Records imprint. Hefty went on to release work from her group L’Altra as well as additional collaborative vocal work with Telefon Tel Aviv and Hughes’ own projects under his name and aliases such as Slicker. Same Waves represents their first collaboration from the ground up. Anderson, a songwriter, singer and multi-instrumentalist along with Hughes, a producer and synthesized-sound designer, create a beautiful and strange hybrid of electronic and organic elements on their first single "My Way” / "Night Ride". The two songs, with their whispery vocals and haunting melodies, represent the breadth and diversity of the their intricately recorded, yet weathered sound that will be on display for their full body of work, Algorithm of Desire, to be released November 14, 2018.
