Artist bio

We are UUVVWWZ, an avant-blues quartet from Lincoln Nebraska, comprised of Teal Gardner, Jim Schroeder, Dustin Wilbourn, and David Ozinga. We have been playing as UU for five years and have put out one album previously, a self-titled record that was screech-cronky, clubbier, and babier than our current work, the trusted language.

We took two years to write this album and are pleased to present these eight songs to you. In the trusted language we aspire to braid music theory with experimental poetry, which functions as a conduit toward a schizo-cultural critique and embodied project (see our video for "Open Sign.") From our previous record to the trusted language listeners will note a development, a shift resulting in an exceedingly unified perspective that is more acutely political and cohesive sounding.

We have played 100 shows at this point, and plan on playing more of them. Our live shows have been described as "the internet on fire" and we want to keep it that way, so we will continue torching 2012 Macbook Pros onstage as long as we can keep stealing them.
