The Six Parts Seven was founded by brothers Allen (guitar) and Jay Karpinski (drums) in 1995. Based in Kent, OH, the band's indie rock appeal stems from the influences of Brian Eno and John Fahey. They issued Silence Magnifies Sound in 2000 with Tim Gerak (guitars, samples), Brad Visker (bass). Two years later, the Six Parts Seven expanded into a sextet, adding Matt Haas (lap steel, high-lonesome guitar), and Steven Clements (grand piano). Things Shaped in Passing followed on Suicide Squeeze that March. They toured in support of the album for the next two years. During that time, The Six Parts Seven issued a split EP with with The Black Keys while also writing and recording a third album. Lost Notes From Forgotten Songs appeared in fall 2003.
