A multiplexor is a communications device that combines several signals for transmission over a single medium. Kyle Coleman, a multi-instrumentalist from Atlanta, GA, wrote and recorded the band's 2011 debut album entirely himself, essentially becoming the "multiplexor" of the sound the listener receives. This new platform brought the formation of a three-piece band who found acceptance in the Atlanta DIY scene.
The band has recorded their sophomore LP with engineer/producer T.J. Elias (Cut Copy, Third Day). The record is a more focused effort. As Coleman's emoting and playing coalesce, the listener experiences a feeling as a musical moment and vice-versa. Relationships swell and subside, and the desire to be understood comes forth in an accurate, sometimes youthfully impulsive way.

Multiplexor’s Some New Air opens up with Hurry, which quickly transitions from a slightly math-rock influenced intro into a sound that’s borrows heavily from post-hardcore elements and throws a bit of pop-punk influence into the mix. The combination makes for an interesting mix that not a lot of bands are playing around with currently. The sound topped with heavily emotional lyrics make for a great combination, weaving intricate instrumentation beneath the pop-punk like vocals. Following Hurry comes Tenth, a decidedly poppier track that still throws in a bit of a mathy breakdown to a great effect. The pop influence on the album is definitely apparent, however, the emotional elements of the lyrics have a much more profound influence on the album as a whole. Lines such as “Even though we call this home, you and I agree we should get out while we can; knowing all this time that we still have a chance to give our burdens some new air to breathe…” from South serve as a definite reminder that the album is coming from some dark and personal experiences. Much of the rest of the album, such as standout tracks Eighteen, Flare, and Waste, follows this same delicate balancing act, transitioning from technical breakdowns to pop inspired riffs. Source
|Jan 12, 2014||Times-Herald | Band Finds Therapeutic Benefits of Making Music
Multiplexor is a form of therapy for Coleman — whether they are playing in his basement or to 300 people in Atlanta, he’s self-medicating. “It’s the most cathartic thing, if I’m going through something, to write it all out and structure it to make a musical statement and defeat the sadness,” Coleman said. “If I can create something and make it really good, it’s like I overcame what it was.” Musical careers are scarce in 2014, in the era where nobody pays for music anymore.
