The final album by Trills. The cover drawings were by Denis Cisneros, who also plays guitar on a couple of tracks. I was given access to his sketchbook, from which I assembled several collages for the cover images.
It's a real shame that this is the final Trills release, because it is probably my favorite thing Jonathan has done thus far. Absolutely beautiful pieces that weave between acoustic sound collages, radiating synthesizer waves, and manipulated piano/guitar pieces. A beautiful final statement from Trills.
The Charlie Naked half consists of enormous deep drones, constantly shifting focal points before you. This is stuff you get lost in. Created with a plethora of instruments at his home studio in Houston, TX. Naked's been doing it since 1995 and it shows.
