Damon Krukowski and Naomi Yang started playing music together in Galaxie 500. When that band ended they continued as a duo, first recording for Shimmy Disc and then on a series of albums for Sub Pop Records. In 2005, they formed their own label 20-20-20 and have since released four new Damon & Naomi albums – The Earth Is Blue, Within These Walls, False Beats and True Hearts, and Fortune. All their LPs and CDs are now available from 20-20-20, or via high-quality download from the Damon & Naomi bandcamp page.

In addition to their work as musicians, Damon & Naomi are the publishers of Exact Change, a small press dedicated to avant-garde literature and artists’ writings. Damon is also a writer (books, blog, articles for Pitchfork, Artforum and others), and Naomi is a visual artist (photography, video, and graphic design).
