Originally released in 2007, "Eye in the Pines" is an outer limb exploration of one of the highest peaks of the MV & EE sound, it is also the first appearance of "Get Right Church" in a gutbucket style that would make will shade moan proud. Space blues crash against lonely tones of the purest amber tinted maple circuit and there is SPECTRASOUND out the ying yang. The material is predominantly the core duo exchange of Matt and Erika but Rongoose shows up on a coupla tracks to let rip some wicked precision bass and Ruth Garbus (of Feathers, Happy Birthday) lays down some wicked-solid awesome traps with vocal calls to ensnare even the furthest depths of MV's sasquatch guitar. Together, they all bag the beast within and in the deepest dub of the forest you can hear Jerry with Lee Perry, Blind Willie Johnson, Jo Ann Kelly, Jorma, Sonny Sharrock and good ol' Neil mellowin' all minds round the campfire. Come on by and roast one.
This was COM 30 issued in an edition of 99 copies packaged in metallic gold paper with hand painted covers by Matt Valentine with insert. 3 colors of paint were used along with a pinner for the grass. Each cover also had "MV & EE" handwritten with love.
