On "Duality", Rig 1 -- aka Ian McElroy of Desaparecidos -- not only shows off his vocal range, but also his versatile production skills.

Rig 1 is the rap-minded project of Ian McElroy, which might seem incongruous if you know him as the keyboardist of Conor Oberst’s post-hardcore act Desaparecidos. But on “Duality”, which comes from Rig 1’s just released album North of Maple, McElroy not only shows off his vocal range as he runs from metaphysical spoken word-like tones to syncopated rhyming, but also his versatile production skills. The video for “Duality” premieres on PopMatters; North of Maple is out today via Team Love.
