When this band was based in Boston (they've since scattered to New York City and Upstate), I saw them every chance I could. The recordings they left behind are stunning... it still kinda blows me away that more people STILL don't know about 'em. So here's yr chance... composed field recordings and bits of Americana, vaguely narrative and definitely cinematic... not as abstract as Eric la Casa or Francisco Lopez, but not quite linear or clear-cut either. This particular album seems to describe what it's like to wake up in US of B's imaginary "America". A small town... people doing something (making breakfast?) just out of earshot, the fuzziness of dreams becoming clearer as the fog of sleep slowly clears... and then, fireworks? Every sound is so richly recorded, and the layers of sounds/signifiers not as clear as they may at first seem.
