Understand is inspired by Ted Chiang’s short story of the same name, and the pair recorded it at a Nashville studio during lockdown in a single-sitting. The record sees Tyler playing acoustic and electric guitar, synthesizer, and bass with Schneider adding pedal steel guitar and banjo. The instrumental endeavour “reveals an evolution of the two composers experimenting through the lens of ambient and krautrock,” we’re told.
