Product Notes

Life in Jackson is a major theme of this second Woodpecker Street release by Steve Smith of the Assemblers, sometimes refracted through other notable views of the world like the Merode Altarpiece by Robert Campin ('House Assembles'), The Black Prince by Iris Murdoch ('My Dark Master'), and the Enneads of Plotinus ('Lose the Thread'). The style ranges from bopping guitar pop ("Bold New City Pipes") to honking synth pop ("Lick My Lips") to moodier pieces ("Dreamtown') to progressive keyboard rock instrumental ("The Rhubarb Path") to a Gershwin-meets-Satie solo piano reverie ("Amsterdam Notebook"). Not only that, there's a neat picture inside of the back of the King Edward Hotel before it's promised restoration. The last track, a rudely taped improv, is named 'Playing Doctor' for the DR-770 'Dr. Rhythm' featured in several tunes on this album, and the process of composing with it; but here the drum machine isn't the DR-770, it's the ancient TR-505.
