The band, whose name is taken from the protagonist of the Kurt Vonnegut novel The Sirens of Titan, have been ever-evolving in the St. Paul scene. Describing their music is impossible; they have influences as disparate as grime and Lillith Fair. The other Malachi Constant is the solo project of Benjamin Weir. Weir was born in St.
Louis, Missouri, and lived there until the summer of 2008, when he relocated to Austin, Texas. Some of his influences include; A Silver Mt. Zion, Kayo Dot, Friendly Bears, Hammock, Nobuo Uematsu, Hitoshi Sakimoto, and more. Malachi Constant explores several different genres of music, based mainly on melody and cubism. The last is a post hardcore band from Springfield, MA which consisted of members of the bands La Guillotine and Deer Tick.
They broke up in 2004. Benjamin Weir’s Malachi Constant project is still together and making music. He has 4 releases so far: Dendrology (2007) I Dreamt of Flying Whales (2008) Surviving Sewanee OST (2009) Under the Texas Sun (2010) Read more on Last.fm.
