RS-34 - 2008
First proper CD of this on-going collaboration between Matt Christensen/Mike Weis of Zelienope and Scott Tuma of Souled American and Boxhead Ensemble. Given that background, it should come as no surprise how far-off sounding and echo drenched this disc is. Incorporating a wide range of acoustic and electric instruments, both live and from tapes of previous performances, the group fully indulge their wanderlust, floating on the back of massive plates of soft focus hiss and falling head first into deep reverb canyons. Vocals sometimes wisp by, as do blasted edges of percussion and Tuma's lovely guitar nocturnes, but it's all desperately distant, more like a distorted memory of a band playing many years after the show has ended. Edition of 300 copies in an offset printed sleeve with cover photos by Mike Weis.
