Malik Ameer and Lorin Benedict are both vocalists of different stripes. Malik raps, Lorin scats. They met each other at jam sessions in Berkeley in the early 2000's, and quickly discovered that their interests in music were quite a bit closer than that suggested by the superficial differences in their respective sounds.
In this album, the duo explore their combined interests in improvisation, groove, story-telling, and general sonic emanation. The vast majority of the instrumental sounds to be heard here were generated on the computer; the process of composing being essentially that of "making beats", as it is conventionally termed in the Hip-hop idiom. Drawing from a wide swath of musical influences, Malik and Lorin attempt to comment on music, their lives, and... well... Buckwheat.
