Artist: SCHWARTZ & BIG BLOOD, ELLIOTT
Title: Ant Farm
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"An incredible album of music, conjoining two different sonic aspects of Maines Strangeness. Big Blood are well known to fanciers of contemporary sub-underground sounds. The duo of Colleen Kinsella andCaleb Mulkerin have been conjuring up rural-experimental ghosts for over a decade. Feeding Tube has previously released their double LP set,Radio Valkyrie (FTR 103LP) to rapturous acclaim. Their music embodies the mysteries of the deep woods better than any other artist we can name. Elliott Schwartz, meanwhile, has been composing and playing brilliant (often keyboard based) music for decades. His 1973 duo album with saxophonist Marion Brown (released by Bowdoin College, where he has been based for many years), is often cited as one of the primest examples of a free jazz/avant classical hybrid. And all of his records are quite killer. This LP came together as the soundtrack for an exhibit calledAnt Farm, organized to showcase the work of Maine-based art quartet,The Ant Girls. This visual arts group included Ms. Kinsella and the lateDorothy "Deedee" Schwartz in its ranks, so perhaps this collab is less surprising than it might initially appear. But surprising or not, the work is an incredible syncretic fusion. Although there are certain instrumental parts we might ascribe to one artist or the other, as the music unwinds these divisions melt and become all-but-imaginary. The blend of Big Bloods psych-tinged free-folk improvisations and Schwartzs aleatory work on keys and percussion is a very righteous blast. 300 numbered copies exist on our planet. Dont delay." --Byron Coley, 2016. Individually numbered with silver foil stamps.
