about

Silver Horns was recorded during a very hot Spring & Summer in Columbia, South Carolina, 2010. It feels now more distant in the past than it actually is, somehow, and perhaps that is a testament to the sense of disconnection present throughout many of this double-album's pieces. Assembled from two or three sessions of guitar improvisation, with a few tracks using a Lowrey organ for additional harmonic support or pedal bass, it was issued in a limited run of 100 silver tin boxes at Lunar Testing Lab's excellent Secret Station imprint, and has since been out of print. Deep, green and pastoral music, for wide-frame country vistas like the one I photographed on the cover, which brings to mind images of warm sunshowers, wild forestry and rolling hills of farmland. A very elemental record that is less music in parts and more atmospheric condition, supported by two hours of deep-country field recordings captured at my father's home in Loris, South Carolina. In addition to the original double-album being reinstated here, I've included a third disc, which contains "Dustwreck" (a digital-only promo piece given to patrons who bought the Secret Station edition) and a recently recorded 51-minute Coppice Halifax "excavation" of "Blue Country Rain", built using the original session tapes (back when the album was in a more embryonic form, bearing a totally different title). While this 3xCD-R reissue is not quite as lavish as the silver tin box the album was originally released in, I feel that this version makes up for it in completeness.
