discourse began refining their experimental-rock sound in the early fall of 2005. comprised of mike henderson (vocals, drums, samples), chase dawes (bass), and jordan dawes (guitar, loops/midi), the power trio has finally released their debut ep almost three years later with the help of jay henderson (band of annuals) who produced the latest studio ep (2008).

discourse is dramatic, emotive and melodic, with haunting guitars that will echo in your bones.

"discourse is like a big wedding cake in outer space. this six song ep has layer upon layer of reverbed-out, sugary goodness. each song is well thought-out and intelligently played. discourse doesn’t follow any trends, they just make the music that they want to make..."
-jon robertson, slug magazine

this is one of my favorite releases of 2008! the music provides a great canvas for the vocals and melodies to paint bright colors on, everything about this is fantastic."
-tyler lusk, the hotness

discourse’s self-titled debut is layer upon layer of gossamer guitar and breathy vocals that together provide the perfect backdrop for sleep-deprived contemplation."
