Notable for their penchant for African polyrhythms and rising profile across the west coast, the group teamed up with White Iris' likeminded Lewis Pesacov(Best Coast, Fool's Gold, Foreign Born) as well as Clinton Welander (Jimmy Cliff) to produce the new release. Tuolumne/Whidbey follows on the heels of Incan Abraham
's 2012 Springhouse EP, about which Pitchfork raved "[you] get the feeling from Springhouse that they've...learned the right lessons about rhythmic elasticity, textural curiosity and instrumental democracy."
