Pure Bathing Culture

On the surface, Pure Bathing Culture has had a relatively brief but potent existence, with three well-received releases in four years, including its last album, 2015’s diverse and somewhat atypical Pray for Rain. In fact, the duo — multi-instrumentalists Sarah Versprille and Daniel Hindman — has been together for the past 17 years, since meeting at William Paterson University in New Jersey during freshman orientation. Ten years after that momentous introduction, the pair became bandmates when they joined Andy Cabic’s rotating stable of players in his ever-evolving project Vetiver; they made significant contributions to the Tight Knit and The Errant Charm albums, and wound up relocating from Brooklyn, N.Y. to Portland, Ore. Read more about the duo in this week's Sound Advice.
