Functional Equivalent Recordings is an independent artist collective built on a shared affinity for creative music, sound and the recording arts.
deli - feelsound EP
deli's debut, feelsound EP consists of two songs, which she describes as "..i wanted it to sound like I was swimming in a coma." Ambient folk music with an abstract sense of melody.
Tate Eskew - oldowan
Tate Eskew explores minimalist guitar drone in two 11 minute pieces with the release of “oldowan”. Exploration of regenerative ecology and indigenous culture inspired the two compositions. Instances of calm reflectiveness are slowly interrupted by passages of anxiety and moments of contentment.
Tate Eskew - Semiotics
Intricate arrangements of guitars, distorted organ and drums frame Eskew’s intimate vocals, moving from delicate finger-picked notes to large rock crescendos, and back again. Songs from Eskew’s collection often start in a traditional directive but soon turn unexpected corners, later blooming into a wash of melody and noise.

Tate Eskew - Modality
Tate Eskew's Modality consists of 20 minutes of ambient drone and experimental improvisation featuring noisey guitar, pulsating synths and atonal melody.
