“Author & Punisher is Tristan Shone, a scientist, sculptor, designer and musician living in San Diego, CA. Listening to Author & Punisher’s records– particularly last year’s great Ursus Americanus and the forthcoming Women & Children– what’s most striking is Shone’s aggressive and agile blend of styles. Traces of doom, dubstep, industrial, noise, and honest-to-goodness pop show up within Shone’s best songs. His music is immediate but mysterious, a chimera that’s recognizable but strange.”
