earn / mirror to mirror c30
split tape from earn (matthew sullivan) and mirror to mirror (alex twomey) that was previously limited to those that either heard select songs performed live or grabbed the earlier edition of this tape on the last earn / mirror to mirror tour.
matt's recent obsession with tape manipulation (think his last earn tape hell on earth on his label ekhein or his collaborations with sean mccann) takes earn's cutting, drenched guitar to a slower, more desolate territory.
|a man seeking sympathy is a man standing still, a man waiting to die.|
mirror to mirror's side soft years continues alex's focus on short-form compositions. layers of melodic, melancholy piano and synthesizer polarized by bouncy, carefree arrangements. once painful memories realized in the present that can only make you laugh now, turning that frown up into a twinkle.
