Taped largely in a Honda Civic, Amateur Doubles (Kye, 2011) is a portrait of an oft-overlooked domestic stage: the car. Graham Lambkin captures the sounds of a family in-motion as they fiddle with windows, play with toys, bicker, pass traffic, and listen, as the song titles note, to French prog artists Besombes/Rizet and Philippe Grancher. While the set-up at first appears simple -- a car ride taken by the artist and his family through upstate New York -- Lambkin subtly and slyly manipulates the recordings, and even the background music itself, to unsettling effect, assembling a hazy, disorienting simulacra of a journey and quintessential domestic scene.
