DRONE-ON THIS; Or, Why the "New Minimalism" Is Underground Rock

CDR

Carbon Records CR42

Among men, marc faris is a puppy. Drone-On This is a confluence of many musics, not just funk-tinged bluegrass like so much of the CDR.Series. Includes 3 "pop songs" (including an ill-advised cover of Lou Reed's "Satellite of Love"), 3 tracks of "free improv," 1 longer "piece," 43 tracks of digital silence and 1 "hidden bonus track" (entitled "Hidden Bonus Track"). The results are not as immediately compelling as, say, the recent output of Finkbeiner or what have you, but the attentive listener will find much to enjoy. Includes instructions for devising one's own track sequence to suit a variety of listening environments. [limited edition of 75, each packaged in a glossy white cd folder with a swatch of Thai paper attached to spine, and 4 double-sided postcard inserts with song descriptions. hand numbered]
