Dymaxion was an experimental New York-based band with members Jeremy Novak and Claudia Newell, recording and performing between 1995 and 2002. Their music was largely sample-based with Retrofuturism|retrofuturistic themes, and has been compared to Stereolab and Pram (band)|Pram.[1] A compilation of most of their EPs was released on Stereolab's Duophonic Records[2], and was described as "the most imaginative and mind-expanding collage of sounds this side of Tokyo" by Exclaim! magazine[3]. The The New York Times|New York Times described a live performance of theirs as "instrumental rock, stacking up dissonant riffs as methodically as Stereolab, but without the blithe pop overlay."[4] The The Village Voice|Village Voice described their sound as "dork-wave."[5] They have received regular airplay on WFMU[6] and WNYU[7].
