"We were crazy about the music of Kurt Weisman from the first second we heard it. You can Google at least two or three examples of us publicly gushing over ⿿Past The Moon,⿝ one of Kurts songs played with his band Feathers. Its probably our single favorite song of last year. Needless to say we are overjoyed to release Kurts debut on vinyl, following an excellent self-released CD-R. Possessed with the rare talent of writing tunes that are at once whimsical and strangely ominous, Kurts music is reverential without being anachronistic. His solo work is even more far-reaching, adding electronic elements without sacrificing the charisma and charm inherent to the songs. While somewhat poppier than his work with Feathers, dont worry - Kurts solo vinyl debut is just as possessed with the spirits of Canterbury. Fans of Les Maledictus Sounds cut up / collage work, (not to mention their affinity for speeding up vocals) will be delighted, as will those who cant understand why the Beach Boys didnt make ⿿Vegetables⿝ a sidelong jam. Elsewhere, Kurt conjures Comus as remixed by Otto Von Schirach. He also writes some of the most compelling melodies weve heard in a long time ⿿ timeless, beautiful ones. Remember the feeling you got when you were a kid and you first saw that last scene in Over The Edge, where they play Valerie Carters version of ⿿Ooh Child⿝ as the kids head off to juvie? Kurts single gives you that kinda feeling. Your life totally needs this." - Mad Monk.
