Pittsburgh's Hurl are a testament to the precise work that can be done by giant machines. Imagine a giant combine, full of gears, spokes and jagged metal cogs, which is built only to carefully sew very tiny leather pouches together. This process is about size and precision combining to make something that is simultaneously quite beautiful and rather loud. The size of the machine is not without purpose, mind you, and the delicate final product could not exist without every one of the mechanical parts working in unison.

Hurl creates a "vast array of moods, tones, tunings, shapes and sounds wielded from their instruments, constructing seemingly impenetrable layers of noise, yet somehow [managing] to slide a delicate melody into a crack or seam in the cacophony." [Thank you Pok Magazine.] Unlike this hypothetical machine, Hurl may create something precise and well designed, but their music is not without emotion and conviction.

Matt, Mat and Noah from Hurl are now in the band Taking Pictures.
