Zero Point Energy - Tilted Planet
$12.00 - $28.00

Zero Point Energy–the Brooklyn-based duo of Genesis Edenfield (he/him) and Ben Jackson (he/him), two-fifths of the beloved but now defunct Atlanta band Warehouse–today announced their debut album Tilted Planet will be released May 17th, 2024 via Danger Collective Records.

Zero Point Energy reflect on literal and esoteric transformations across Tilted Planet’s 12 resonant tracks, posing questions about the self and its resilience. It’s as engaging as it is unflinching, and ultimately, a document of two close friends rediscovering the anchoring spark of their magical collaboration.

Following the dissolution of Warehouse in 2016, both Jackson and Edenfield pursued their own solo projects. Ben moved to Brooklyn and started playing shows as Tilted Planet, while Genesis stayed in Atlanta, pursuing painting and slowly releasing his own music as Rug. “Those projects were both attempts to reclaim a little personal agency after a five-way collaborative band,” says Jackson. “We realized we prefer a little bit of collaboration.” When Edenfield moved to New York City in 2018 after having learned how to play guitar, the two reignited their musical partnership. After work, they’d patiently hone material they’d written separately and merge them into a cohesive, synergetic whole. Four years of this unhurried but diligent routine resulted in Tilted Planet, which was eventually recorded in Brooklyn with engineer Matt Labozza (whose credits also include Palm and Palberta), and with Jimmy Sullivan (bass) and Nick Corbo (drums).

Tilted Planet is a testament to rebirth, for Jackson and Edenfield reinventing their musical partnership after the dissolution of their old band. It’s a transformative wrestling for a sense of wholeness that occurs throughout the LP. On opener “I’m Receiving Downloads,” which alludes to reincarnation and a soul returning to Earth, Edenfield sings, “If the world seems so Incomplete / Maybe it’s time / To come back again.” For Zero Point Energy, the entire point of the band to Jackson and Edenfield is to stay present with each other and have something to hold onto.

“We've known each other for so long now that we've gone through multiple phases of everything going away and coming back,” says Jackson. “We met in a different city when we were students and we've moved cities, had multiple jobs, romantic partners, ups and downs, and mental health struggles. Every ebb and flow.” Edenfield concurs. “This is one of our longest friendships,” he says. “The fact that we have such a connection means I am also more of a fan of this music just because I'm a fan of us. This band feels like it’s always gonna be there. Zero Point Energy is like a lifetime project for us.”
