Recorded and slowly tweaked in late 1999, these melodic compositions for acoustic guitar and ring modulator are the first true solo recordings by Steve Lobdell (Baseball Astrologer collaborator, leader of both Davis Redford Triad and Sufi Mind Game, string wrangler for Faust). Their whispery, fluffy-cloud dynamism will appeal to the desire for a little subtlety. Automatic Writing by the Moon's 13 tracks are a mixture of massive overdubbing, wondrous cinematic composition, folksy improvisation and studio experimentation. The backwards feedback of "Astral Projection" is vibrantly illuminating, while the instrumental arrangement of Chilean folksinger Victor Jara's "The Departure" evokes a cosmic western scene. So, yes, this record is psychedelic—if it really must be dumbed down—but not in the burnt-tar hooliganism sense; despite healthy studio trickery, Mr. Lobdell still insists on playing the guitar with his fingers.
