Release Date: 3 November

Lymbyc Systym’s Jared and Michael Bell have done much preparing for the release of their second album, Shutter Release, due in stores on November 3. The brothers drew inspiration for the second album through late night phone calls to one another. The brothers, living in Austin and Brooklyn respectively, would sing melodies and coordinate and craft rhythms together over the phone and from this give and take, the record began to take shape. The ten song album came together using such instruments as organs, vibraphone, analog synthesizers, banjo, glockenspiel, African percussion, and even a toy piano. 

To promote the release of the Shutter Release, the brothers are hitting the road with The Books and Iron and Wine. There are two remaining shows available to catch the Bell brothers live:

09/25 Charlottesville, VA The Southern
09/26 Princeton, NJ Terrace F. Club

In addition to touring, the first single off the album, “Ghost Clock” is available as an MP3 download.
