Belong is an American experimental music duo composed of Turk Dietrich and Michael Jones. The group formed in New Orleans in 2002. Their debut album, October Language, was recorded in 2004 and released in 2006. The duo's sound blends ambient and glitch styles, with a focus on guitar textures. Reviews of their music have made comparisons to current Glitch and electronica artists like Fennesz and Tim Hecker, as well as the early 1990s shoegazing sound attributed to bands such as My Bloody Valentine and The Jesus and Mary Chain. Guitars and synthesizers are run through various effects to produce the band's unique sound. October Language is said, by many fans, to be strongly linked in theme and tone to the duo's New Orleans locale. In January 2008, their Tour EP, surfaced in 128 kbit/s quality, ripped by a fan. Belong decided to directly offer it to fans in MP3 for free, at a higher quality 192 kbit/s. This was also done for their latest EP, Same Places, this time in 320 kbit/s. In 2009, "October Language" was released on vinyl by Geographic North Records, a label based out of Atlanta, GA.
