His latest release is the self-titled debut album from the duo How???, which he formed with his longtime friend Matt Dowling.

Tebeleff has also recorded under the moniker Blacklodge.

In this conversation, Tebeleff discusses the diverse music he heard in his childhood home, the guitar teacher who introduced him to funk and broader geopolitical perspectives, the impact the band Radiohead has had on him and his love of James Brown.
