Billions of Phonographs is the first recording by the Instruments. It is a beautiful and brilliant record with entrancing folk melodies. Heather McIntosh, the band's songwriter, has been a staple of Athens music for years. She has been playing cello since she was very young and earned a degree in music from the University of Georgia. Heather quickly realized school was not enough of an outlet for her talents. She joined a punk band, Year Zero, in which she played bass. That lasted about a year, then she discovered performance art through Medaglia D'oro and Dixie Blood Mustache. She is currently a member of Japancakes, Circulatory System, Great Lakes and Dixie Blood Mustache. She also has played or recorded with bands such as Lil Wayne, Gnarles Barkley, and Of Montreal.
