(from the TIME-LAG catalog) here's something a bit different… a collaborative release with the band's own indian queen label. pretty hard to pin this one down, but its a trip for sure. a rather mysterious one man band solo outing from texas, who builds up layer upon layer of violin, viola, acoustic guitar, slippery electric slide, percussion, electronics, accordion, buried vocals, and found sounds into haunted, rollicking, thick sonic blankets of sound. many simple parts entwined, looped, and orchestrated into an undulating whole, like naive bedroom folkrock filtered through some blissed out minimalist phase experiment. ecstatic, post-psychedelic chamber rock maybe? really doesn't sound like much else out there, but its instantly enjoyable, energized, and grooves freely in its own uplifting way.
packaged in ghostly and subtly beautiful offset printed foldout cover, with foldout insert. 180gm vinyl. limited, numbered edition of 300 copies (CD's in a tri-fold, double sided, offset printed cover. woven japanese inner sleeves. edition of 500).
released 23 October 2008
- 'copper-pot' - cello is emily gerson / matt and casey sang / he also played with the radio
- 'shouldn't be in school' - torin talked about how he knows the secret at the beginning
- the pearl st. co-op gave me its sounds throughout the making of this album and they didn't even know it
- all other sounds by SLTM, who quoth: "I still don't know what SLTM is; an aural accumulation device; a wave in the ocean; a memory resistor; the IN/OUT of an organic circuit; a starry-eyed-bliss-transformer; the sound of nerves attaching, detaching, strengthening, and severing..."
