Javelin consists of two cousins, Tom Van Buskirk and George Langford. They started making music together in Providence, RI in 2004. Their first release is a self-titled 12” limited to 500 copies with hand-screened artwork. A second 12" will be released in the first quarter of 2010 via Thrill Jockey, and a full-length from Luaka Bop shortly thereafter.

A description of their live shows:
"In performance, Javelin use colorfully painted boomboxes that form large speaker totems (“boombaatas”) which can hang from the ceiling or stack up on the floor like pyramids. The signal from the show is broadcast via FM transmitter, thereby fostering audience participation (B.Y.O.Boombox) or fueling battery-powered, mobile parties. The duo has played venues as diverse as the children’s branch of the Olneyville Public Library (RI), to the Museum of Modern Art (NY), both of which happened in the same week."
