Sonic Monoliths, With Poetry: Kid Millions and Sarah Bernstein on Their New Album “Broken Fall”
What happens when two supremely talented musicians collaborate on a new recording, and then throw some poetry into the mix?

Millions demonstrates his fondness for frenetic rhythms, while Bernstein summons up fantastically atmospheric sounds with her violin and voice, creating a haunting and unpredictable sound from beginning to end. I talked with both musicians about the process of making this one, how it relates to their prior work, and how they got some of the album’s most distinctive sounds to emerge.
