2017 is the year I will go bankrupt, but at least I will have released a lot of music to console me and light my days.
I’ve got lots of projects that I will not reveal for superstitious reasons because I’ve got to admit that I’m superstitious…
After the brightening release of ‘Emilia’ by C. Worth, I’m really excited to announce the entry into the Almost Halloween Time Records family of The Debts. Isn’t this a wonderful start of the year already?
The Debts are a low fidelity folky band that has its roots deep in Omaha, Nebraska and that teams for this release: Dane Sybrant, Brooke Sybrant, Nicole Blauw and Kevin Shaw. They have donated us two songs, one recorded on a Tascam 4-track in what I beleive is a haunted Motel in Wray, Colorado and one recorded live at the White Eagle Saloon in Portland, Oregon. This comes after several cassette albums on Unread and one LP on Shrimper just to give you an idea of what to expect from these guys and is part of the series of the cassingles Almost Halloween Time Records has been releasing in the course of the years. 31 copies and all the sleeves will be different, hand drawn, hand numbered, unique. Cattails, Typha, Muddy Waters, Missouri River and Salt will populate the sleeves for this series.
The Desert was inspired by a line in Tacitus that says “The Romans make a desert and call it peace.” Also alludes to the sowing of salt into the land after the fall of Carthage.
Two songs, one recorded on a Tascam 4-track in what is a haunted Motel in Wray, Colorado and one recorded live at the White Eagle Saloon in Portland, Oregon.
