Organic drones and free folk from two guys typically operating in a digital context. That is to say, this is atypical from the rest of their catalog only insofar as the instruments used are all acoustic. The results are quite beautiful, sometimes sublime, and, well, like the instruments used... it resonates.
Not to sound glib or overly-gushy, it's a wonderful aberration in their recorded output. 12 & 6-string guitar, mountain dulcimer, hand drums, flutes, recorders, and various other things bowed, plucked and scraped. It's psychedelic and droning at times, and others it's good plain good music. At all times it makes me think of the newest Pelt records or some bands that call Jeweled Antler home. Maybe this is the first open letter to rest of the artists loosely (& perhaps erroneously) labeled as "New Weird America." Whatever the case may be, the record's killer.
Limited to 123.
