Squrl is: Carter Logan and Jim Jarmusch. An enthusiastically marginal rock bandfrom New York City who like big drums & distorted guitars, cassette recorders,loops, feedback, sad country songs, molten stoner core, chopped & screwed hip-hop,and imaginary movie scores. Squrl began in 2009 when Jim Jarmusch and hisproducer Carter Logan teamed with producer/engineer Shane Stoneback to recordsome original music for the film The Limits Of Control. Echoing the variedSpanish landscapes captured in the film, the three emerged with a set of slow-motionpsychedelic rock instrumentals (releasing them as Bad Rabbit). Following these scoringsessions Jim, Shane, and Carter continued to record new originals while also exploringthe back-alleys of American country, noise, and psychedelia. Squrl released a series of 3 EPs of these songs, recorded over a 3 year period by Shane at TreefortRecording in Brooklyn, NY. In 2012, Jim collaborated with Jozef Van Wissem andreleased an LP on Sacred Bones entitled The Mystery of Heaven. In 2013 they beganto compose and perform the score for the film Only Lovers Left Alive with VanNuisance. Bridging ancient and modern sounds, the score serves as a reflection of thedistinct textures of Detroit and Tangier. The film and soundtrack, the latter which alsofeatures Zola Jesus, were released worldwide in 2014, and quickly earned the groupthe Cannes Soundtrack Award.
