Olds Sleeper - June (USA 2010)
"I am a one-man band project and reside in Lancaster, Pennyslvania. - I record using cassette tape players, boom boxes, broken microphones and digital mp3 recorders - I often record outside for ambience, and then mix it down on a tascam digital eight track in my basement, Malfangled Dog studios.
"June" was recorded during the first five months of 2010. I play all sounds and instruments myself. I use some homemade instruments and a toy guitar on several tracks of June, which is my fourth release:
My previous releases are: "Catching Night Before Dawn" - released in 2008 as both a limited (run of 50 - sold out) hand-packaged cd/art made from recycled soda and beer packaging and a digital release; in fall of 2009 "Horseheads/Backroads" and "Rise and Rust" were both digital only releases. All digital releases were offered free. I traded art, cash and music for the handmade physical release.
Olds Sleeper music might fit in the "alt-folk" "fringe-folk-country" "noise" "singer-songwriter" and "fuct" categories. My music is influenced mostly by the weather/seasons and the continued calamity of life. My heroes are townes van zandt, jeff magnum, hasil adkins, john prine, jack Kerouac, J.J. cale, Cormac McCarthy, son house and lightning hopkins."
You'll find some excellent slide guitar playing on "June" and some great arrangements aswell as some fine distorted vocals on some tracks!
Favourite track: daisy
