Carbon Records CR12
a release inspired by the cyclical patterns of lock32 on the Erie Canal System. Joe+4 is Joe Tunis of Hilkka's solo joint. Covering mostly ambient and stark trajectories with guitar, static, found sounds and lots of effects. This release conjures up a brooding and unnerving atmosphere. Some tracks might bring to mind Jandek or Loren Mazzacane Connors at their most lonesome and desolate.The original edition came in deluxe hand made packaging incorporating actual pebbles from the Erie Canal. A compelling listen.
