Nameless Sound founder David Dove and Grandfather Child's Lucas Gorham were originally commissioned by local gallery labotanica to apply the late DJ Screw's distinctive, hyper-slow production style to its own improvised music for the multimedia "Screwed Anthologies" exhibition, and the project worked so well they've managed to squeeze a three-week tour out of it. Dove describes the duo's effects-laden music as "something like a record of improvised music slowed down, with a dose of low drones, some achingly-slow-to-a-crawl blues and a sampling of DJ Screw tracks selected from the hundreds of mixtapes released by DJ Screw in his lifetime." It's an idea that sounds as mystifying as it does unique, and one that certainly couldn't have come from anywhere else but H-town.
