SQÜRL is the new name for film director/guitarist Jim Jarmusch
's trio Bad Rabbit, who released the Limits of Control EP soundtrack to his film of the same name.
Bad Rabbit was formed in 2009 when Jarmusch
and Carter Logan recruited session musician and engineer Shane Stoneback. Their sound is percussion-heavy with detuned and droning guitars, loops, and cassette recorders drenched in feedback. The music melds everything from chopped & screwed hip-hop to country to stoner metal and soundtrack-like atmospheres. The group's debut, EP 1, was released in a limited edition in the late spring of 2013. EP 2, which featured a remix by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs
' Nick Zinner, arrived in November of that year. ~ Thom Jurek, Rovi
