The Dead Texan ( )

The Dead Texan
Kranky ( http://www.kranky.net/ )
The Dead Texan is the sounds of lonely robots walking along the side of a dusty highway.... Swirls, drones, guitars, strings and detuned piano sounds make for an umistakeably surreal and intense soundscape. Fururistic Folk music. And yes, some of the tracks have the most lovely vocals. Quiet and honest. Heart-drenched Lullabyes. Songs build and slowly play off each other. Melodic shifts are present but often go seamless and unnoticed. Chord changes throw you off into adjacent harmonic dimensions. Space age chamber music. Earthbound yet ready to blast off into space at any second. The Dead Texan features music by Adam Wiltzie (Stars Of The Lid, Aix Em Klemm). This music CD contains both music videos by Wiltzie and video artist Christina Vantzos.
