Inheritance

Deathless Gods with Human Bods, Los Angeles’ very own tinyband, returns with Inheritance, a concept album exploring the phenomenon of identity as technology. With their follow up to 2017’s 123456789, Jade Matias Bell and Mars Avila examine the ways that people encrypt, perform, reappropriate, and celebrate their marginalized identities by composing two dialogues between four narrating characters, all in one family. While spotlighting chicanx, transmasculine, and feminist experiences, the duo weaves lush sonic landscapes with intricate lyrics and documentary interviews with friends and family to create a snapshot of a much larger moment in time—somewhere in the convergence of identity, pride, vulnerability, and unexpected euphoria.
