TLR 014: wooden wand and the vanishing voice — l'un marquer contre la moissonneuse CD
out of print
in stores late april, 2005. over the course of their recording career, wooden wand and the vanishing voice have proven to be multi-faceted and difficult to define. they have successfully allowed the body of their work to be cryptic, proto-spiritual, emotionally bare, brashly exuberant, and, throughout it all, completely entrancing. their discography, which contains numerous cassettes, CDRs and a little bit of vinyl - all of which display their twisted and droning take on psychedelic folk - has been constantly evolving and has seen each of their superb releases build upon the strengths of its immediate predecessor.
l'un marquer contre la moissonneuse is an exploration of the goodness inherent in the human heart and how that decency can help transform the world into a better place. sound grandiose? well, revolutions do begin with ambition. long-held beliefs state that every morning rises from bed they have cheated death once more through the grace of god. through the extension of this theme, every good deed a person performs during those waking hours may very likely stand as a mark against the reaper on the great cosmic score sheet. wooden wand and the vanishing voice have collected four tracks recorded in various locations over the fall of 2004 to act as a sonic testament to this principle.
