9 on Bali is a collaboration between veteran home taper Dan Susnara and Dan Sweigert (founding member of Chicago's math rock ensemble Star Period Star). They draw from many influences from breezy pop, aooustic, world music, experimental soundscapes and progressive rock. "Frank of Maryland" tells the story of a grave robber collecting fresh bodies for medical students, but with a happy 70's pop vibe. "Projector" talks about the odd and somewhat contradictory relationship between an actor/actress and his/her fans. The song "Gist" speaks of a bizarre cult that "converse in tents till the first trucks arrive, they secret themselves 'hind a series of panels and planks and gradually new constellations form". Later in the story: "Somewhere in Spain a calf is born with 3 revolving remarkably human like heads, they rejoice". "Kite Hawker" is a mix of light and dark, lush chords and melodies, interspersed with harsher dissonances and sound experiments. With all the experimentation, good songwriting and melody still remains the focal point of the band.
