ink puddle compound Tantrum Seas and Dust Lanes (CD, £4.50)label: camera obscura
Official debut of this self taught Illinois multi instrumentalist after numerous self released outings. He crafts gloom laden audio portraits of folky minimalism that seem to bind instinctively to lush narcotic soundscapes. His desire seems to be to find the midground between structured songwriting and abstract experimental compositions. He plays all the instruments himself, layering them to create interseting synergies and interplays thus avoiding the one-dimensional character associated with many one-person projects. Influenced by the Legendary Pink Dots, Swans, Eno, Silver Apples and Bark Psychosis. 11 Tracks, 54 minutes of music.
