    Secret History is the long-awaited follow-up to Preface/Alternate (Evol Recordings, 2008) which garnered Music for Headphones Filter Magazine’s nod as “Undiscovered Band of the Month” (May, 2008). Songs from Preface/Alternate appeared on several compilations. Doctor was included on Urban Outfitter’s Sampler 30, (2009) Guitar Center’s Fresh Cuts Vol. 1 (2008) and a compilation for runhundred.com (2010). Empty appeared on Unexplainable Recordings, Unexplainable Forever (2008).

    Unlike Preface/Alternate, which marries electronic and live instrumentation, Secret History utilizes only live instruments. Most of the tracks were recorded straight through, some in one take, giving the album the feeling of “the best live show we never played” according to bassist Aaron Aleiner. Every band member contributed to the creative process and the resulting sound of the album. Members include: guitarist/vocalist Jonathan Allen, guitarist Greg Kinter, bassist Aaron Aleiner, drummer Justin Gibbon, and keyboardist Phil Watson.

about

Music for Headphones Portland, Oregon

More than just a band, Music for Headphones is a trajectory through the past of post-punk, electronic and psychedelic music, through shoegaze and spacerock into some kind of future unknown. Categories and boundaries are permeable and constantly moving as MFH carves out its own place in music, riding familiar arches and charting unfamiliar territory, rendering the word genre almost meaningless. ... more
