Nashville guitarist William Tyler (left) has teamed up with Luke Schneider on a four-song EP for Leaving Records.

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.

Tyler released New Vanitas, a solo album, in September 2020, but more recently he’s announced an album with Marissa Anderson.
