US - Oregon - Full Moon 247 - 10/16/16
Cars & Trains
"Secret Worlds" is tagged as a 'new, unreleased song made from leftovers from the Dust recording sessions with William Ryan Fritch'. Yes, please, I like leftovers.
Tom Filepp is one creative mind residing in Portland, Oregon. Filepp describes himself (and his whereabouts) as an 'Avid live-looper, tinkerer, coder, maker of small worlds.' I've been
checking out and listening to Filepp's Cars & Trains project for some years, and I really enjoyed the sound of Dust - a thrillingly beautiful, all-instrumental
album from the electronic sub-genre folktronica. Circleintosquare's press sheet had the most fitting description of Dust when calling it 'the
soundtrack to the stars in all of our heads'. Exactly to the point of things. After Dust, Fillepp surprised us with the nice Drifts EP. Now, here's a track that didn't
make it onto Dust.
"Secret Worlds" sees another looping, swirling 'space jam' between Filepp (synthesizers, toys, and most instruments) and Fritch (piano and cello), and the result is a dizzying, spellbinding
organic piece of music. Be curious, be supportive. Go visit Filepp's Bandcamp site: Subscribe!
