Tearing through space and time in a rickety Moog-powered spaceship, Higher Learning is well on their way towards the outer reaches of Jupiter. Armed only with the spirit of exploration, the four psychonauts from the streets of Atlanta, GA gaze through the haze of the cockpit out into the little-known expanse of our fine universe. Their mission, daunting as it may be, is simple at its core: to distill the cosmos into sound. Their natural abilities to endure long periods of isolation and odd sleep schedules have enabled them to strive towards this goal with unbridled tenacity. Over the course of their journey, they have performed at festivals such as Wakarusa, Moogfest, Suwanne Hulaween and Counterpoint to sharing the stage with artists such as Tycho, Lotus, Big Gigantic, Papadosio, Bluetech and EOTO to name a few. From their collectively-twisted mind comes a sonic stew composed of liberal portions of analogue and digital frequencies - grounded for your pleasure by the familiar sounds of a live four-piece band. HL cordially invites you to join them on their interstellar adventures forward into the great wide yonder. Planets will turn, stars will die, and new stars will be born. Only one thing is for sure - you will want to hear it all.
