An Amoral Animal by The Formalist

The Formalist is an electronic pop duo comprised of Erik Laroi (vocals, guitar) and Stephen Krieger (beats, sampling). Laroi and Krieger met during the late ’90s through the college music scene at Columbia University in New York at a monthly series of clandestine exhibitions featuring experimental music, art, and performance. Back in the day, Laroi was drumming for shoegazing band Closer and Krieger was in the experimental outfit The Freight Elevator Quartet, who would go on to release File Under Futurism with DJ Spooky and Becoming Transparent both on Caipirinha Records.
