The Burnside Project is the duo of multi-instrumentalists Richard Jankovich and Gerald Hammill. Jankovich wrote all the songs on their 2003 debut album, The Networks, the Circuits, the Streams, the Harmonies, though Hammill co-arranged the material with Jankovich, and there are about a dozen other contributors, most notably Shannon McArdle
of the Mendoza Line
(who added vocals to five songs).
Though the band's rhythm projects are very much grounded in late-20th/early-21st century electronic dance music, the songs themselves are mostly in a quirky indie pop mold. The Burnside Project pulls off this synthesis more successfully than most in this lightly trod field. In 2005, the band released The Finest Example Is You. ~ Richie Unterberger, Rovi
