Lily Tapes & Discs mainstay The National Park Service returns with his most declarative and expansive work yet - "June/The Seagull" picks up right where NPS’s amazing 2013 album I Was Flying left off and takes us soaring over the canyon through clouds of bells, coasting along on a deceptively simple guitar line that opens up into a full-band clatter before letting us back down. From this point on it’s all about the slow landing and the afterglow. Helping us down on the reverse side is Lung Cycles’s "Country Poem (take 2)", a more meditative and restrained take on the tape collage sound that defined Squanto’s Basement Tropic. Zoomed in and zoned out, like whiplash in slow motion. An acid-dipped walk along the river at sunset.
The eleventh official release from Lily Tapes & Discs. Released in an edition of 50 pro-dubbed chrome tapes. Packaged in Brad Paks from Stumptown Printers with artwork designed by Ben Lovell and printed by Jeremy Ferris (droppedintothesand.tumblr.com
