Precinct is a New York based group that makes music and visual art. Band members have included Peter Labier (Psychobuildings), Nathan Gwynne (DROOIDS, The Ice Machine and Swift, The Love Loves), Etienne Dugay (Splash, Real Estate, Predator Vision), Andrea Merkx (The Love Loves) and Zachary Cale (Illuminations). Sonically the band was quite adventurous, blending low fidelity garage styles with free form dub jams. With their use of blaring saxes, jagged guitars, sci fi synths and emotively delivered vocals Precinct shared a sound akin to bands like PIL, Swell Maps, and The Cure. After releasing the Compound EP on Black Maze Books, Precinct recorded their first full length album, Stranger, which was released in the fall of 2008 on All Hands Electric. After the release of Stranger, Precinct toured Germany and collaborated on an art/music installation at the Fleetstreet Theatre in Hamburg. Since Precinct disbanded in 2010 the members have all gone on to work on new projects.
