Joyfultalk - Pommel Horse/If I Had Your Address In Chicago

You can read my general notes on Camp Wavelength here. After a couple nights on the island, the campers were sleeping in, so seeing them rouse themselves (many to head on down to the beach) in the open spaces of the early afternoon festival ground (filling in slowly once the gates opened) gave the scene a morning feeling. Quite apt, them, to have Joyfultalk on hand to give a gentle wake-up call, their droney/drifty segues opening up into some non-invasive electronic textures. Jay Crocker (of Calgary-via-Crousetown, Nova Scotia) is behind this project, often playing on invented/modified instruments, but is touring as a trio, creating some lively experimentation on stage.

* Thanks to Backward Music for passing along the titles to these ones.
