Basic Printer is an INDIETRONICA PROJECT based out of NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE. It is the BRAIN CHILD of JESSE GILLENWALTERS and is brought to life with the help of AARON WALTERS, GABE MILLMAN and PETER FERGUSON.

Basic Printer is a foray of self-reflection into a hall of funhouse mirrors, utilizing everything from lush string arrangements to distorted synthesizers to color and present Gillenwalters' internal squabbles. Taking cues from modern pop, indie, and experimental music, Basic Printer reads as musically literate, eccentric, and carelessly joyous all at once.


PRESS

Reminiscent of artists like Discovery, and Bad Cello, Basic Printer’s vocal melodies are comforting and oozing with impressionable beats that will make you bop along.
— Play Too Much
Basic Printer is the epitome of high energy, sounding like a mix of the best parts of Twenty-One Pilots and Matt & Kim, with a fun-loving punk energy. The foursome filled the air with dreamy synths, wave-like slide guitar, pounding drum beats, and awesome vocal samples that blew their audience away.
— Nashville Offbeat
Dark lyrics with major melodies. Natural drum tones coupled with all but natural synth. Catchy melodies introduced and engulfed by the powerful jaws of tones I wanted to run from (in a good way).
— Dingusonmusic
...An adventure in synth pop with a subtle hint of Sergeant Pepper.
— Voxel Records
...Refraining Animal Collective type spacing, mixing Black Moth Super Rainbow synth aesthetics and blooming a completely new brand, Basic Printer has reached a peak.
