LYONNAIS - WANT FOR WISH FOR NOWHERE
LYONNAIS started in 2008 as a musical outlet for longtime friends and collaborators Farbod Kokabi and Farzad Moghaddam. Immediately after witnessing a Rhys Chatham performance, the duo realized that they needed to fill a void in Atlanta's otherwise vibrant music scene. Practicing wherever they could (often after hours in the offices of Georgia State University's radio station), Moghaddam (bass, synth, vox) and Kokabi (guitar, synth, vox) set out to develop their ideas, enlisting additional support from Lee Tesche (guitar, vox) and TJ Blake (drums & percussion) . Recorded and produced entirely by the band themselves, the songs' deft interweaving of the crystalline and the murky have been fine-tuned since the group's beginnings into a singular aesthetic redolent of their psych-drone forebears while sonically aware of contemporary synth-drift architects like Oneohtrix Point Never and Stellar Om Source.
