Sounds Like A Buzz

Available now on all major streaming platforms:

Here are 15 tracks that chart a course through a diverse landscape of words, melodies and beats. Replete with a host of well-known collaborators, Sounds Like A Buzz is Marc Nair’s third full-length spoken word album and the first released under Maker Records. Produced and released by James Lye.

Sounds Like A Buzz is accompanied by a limited-edition chapbook that contains the texts of all the poems and a short essay on spoken word. It is woven together with photographs that add a different way of apprehending the pieces. Together, it becomes a sound that makes it way into the world; low, insistent and dreaming of new hives.
