theo angell & the tabernacle hillside singers "auraplinth"
what can i say about theo angell? he's an artist, a musician, a filmmaker, a shaman. he lives and works in new york city, but plies his trade all over the country. angell is perhaps best known for his work in hall of fame (with samara lubelski) and jackie-o motherfucker .. but with the release of "auraplinth," all that will change. this is theo angell's opus. this is his masterwork. it finds him at his absolute peak and delivers an album unlike anything else. he uses his voice to etch out a detailed map of the stars, made up of dirt and bone, proving the organic nature of the cosmos.
"auraplinth" is an amalgamation and invention, joining foundation with the ether. both of these forces are constantly at work throughout these 15 tracks. his voice is molded into every possible form. at times it reverberates above a river of folk-inspired melodies, while at other moments, he creates a bed of sound with wordless vocal moans. that voice is the glue that holds this great document together.
on “auraplinth,” theo is once again joined by the evolving cast of characters known as the tabernacle hillside singers. this time it includes cynthia nelson (ruby falls), dan brown (hall of fame), & josh stevenson (magneticring).
packaged in full-color, heavy duty gatefold jackets with original artwork by christian holstad (the front cover image is actually from a victorian death mask of theo himself), complete with full lyric sheet. the album is mastered by yellow swans' pete swanson.
