Experimental rockers the Magik Markers formed in Hartford, CT, in 2001, featuring guitarist/vocalist Elisa Ambrogio, drummer Pete Nolan, and bassist Leah Quimby. Inspired by no wave and hardcore, the Magik Markers crafted a free-rocking sound that made the most of their stream-of-consciousness approach. The band made CD-Rs available at its shows and eventually caught the ear of Thurston Moore, who invited the group to play on Sonic Youth's 2004 American tour. Moore's Ecstatic Peace label co-released the band's album "I Trust My Guitar, Etc." with Apostasy Recordings in 2005. the Magik Markers were prolific in 2006, releasing "The Volodor Dance" (an installment in Southern Records Latitudes series) and "A Panegyric to the Things I Do Not Understand" (on Gulcher Records). That year, Leah Quimby left the group, and after auditioning several replacements, Ambrogio and Nolan decided to continue as a duo. On 2007's "Boss", the pair worked with Lee Ranaldo, who produced the album and chipped in guitar and glockenspiel parts. They moved to Drag City for 2009's "Balf Quarry", which found the band moving in a subdued but eclectic direction.
