Terrapin Pond: Medicines and Motions
From the album Hello All Seasons available on August 24th
Neo-psychedelic mastermind / producer Craig Morris (Thee American Revolution / Ideal Free Distribution / Apples in Stereo) presents an innovative fusion of garage rock and Appalachian folk with his band Terrapin Pond, incorporating friends, family and regional Bluegrass musicians (including members of the Kentucky family band The McKendrees) in a swirling folk-psych landscape.
Their debut album, Hello All Stations on Garden Gate Records, plays like an unheard mountain songbook discovered by latter-day indie rockers—full of the classic hooks we might anticipate from Morris and company, but this time growing in a darker, mossier forest.
Fuzz guitar, banjo, mandolin and Mellotron ebb and surge, buoyed by lush harmonies and a heavy rhythm section, as if Fleet Foxes collided with The Band. Described by Morris as “modern rural psychedelic music,” Terrapin Pond is certain to appeal to fans of Americana and of the new psychedelia.[audio:http://insomniaradio.net/audio/dailydose/irdd-terrapinpond-medicinesandmotions.mp3]
