Disney characters with 4 eyes, squirrels without a nose and purple owls with a yellow mohawk are psyched to anounce this new Daniel Padden LP. Daniel Padden is a multi-instrumentalist and a full time member of the UK based goof troupe Volcano The Bear. For this new LP he used; piano, harmonium, cello, amplifier, zither, tape recorder, concertina, banjo, thumb piano, viola, organ etc... to create a beautiful fictional soundtrack for a cartoon film that had to be made in the 50's but could have been made during yesterday's hurricane too. Or a free dude going folk while trying to play chamber music and pouring a discusting concrete tape collage sauce over the finnished total.
Demented music box melodies drift amidst soaring strings, clinking clanking percussion, deep moaning cellos, bursts of staticky field recordings and manipulated field recordings, while over the top float haunting mysterious melodies. Sounds a bit like a more druggy demented Tom Waits. Elsewhere, thick washes of fuzzed out ambient whir wrap themselves around damaged pitch shifted guitar warble, junk yard percussion marches through thick clouds of ominous drones, detuned acoustic guitars shimmer beneath heavily reverbed scrapes and squeaks and wheezing harmonica melodies. A totally mesmerizing, dizzying and damaged trawl through some surreal junk yard filled with broken musical instruments and ghost musicians, jamming in the middle of the night to an audience of beat up stuffed animals and rusted out appliances. So cool! - Aquaruis Records
