As we receive this new offering from Matthew Himes we enter hazy fields of wildflower, a waking dream not entirely unfamiliar.
Following the path of last year's solo full length "Hemlock & Bergamot", Himes delivers two new fresh cut blossoms of drifting songcraft. The lead single "Hold Tight" is a comforting promise of better times to come, one day at a time, while the flip side "My Ride" is a sort of pre-post mortem, speaking to lost friends and ashes unspread.
The music is transmitted from times before and yet to be, from long boat trips on slow moving bodies of water, and care-free days now seemingly gone forever." - Home & Garden Music
Himes sings and plays acoustic, electric and bass guitars, with electric piano, lap steel, trombone, synthesizer, and electronics.
For best possible results with these custom hand-cut records, we recommend setting your stylus tracking weight to 2.5 grams or more. Different turntables will produce varying results. Experiment for maximum tracking accuracy and fidelity.
