Ongoing recording for the second album from THE MUSIC TAPES entitled Music Tapes for Clouds and Tornadoes, took place over a long period of time in JULIAN KOSTER’s bedroom. The bedroom, itself, moved often between places ranging from Athens, Georgia to a series of locations inhabited “coincidentally,” he says, “by the ghosts of old amusement parks who’d passed away,” including the Nantucket Beach peninsula in Massachusetts, New York’s Coney Island, and an island off the coast of Maine. The new album spotlights Koster’s songcraft and distinctive vocals, his almost religious devotion to the singing saw, and numerous contributions from other musicians in the Elephant 6 orbit. As on previous efforts, recording was done using an array of antique hardware, giving Music Tapes for Clouds and Tornadoes a timeless, texturally rich sonic palette. It is the sound of Julian’s world poking through the curtain surrounding objective reality. (STREET DATE - 8/19/2008)
