On Carson Garhart's (aka Salamander Wool) second Ehse release, no sound or device is safe. Experimenting with found sound, taboo sound, dissonance, un quantized "popular rhythms", and a general affinity with the eclectic, this record blooms full where the latter begun. Stemming from a cosmology that Apollo would be proud of, this mostly instrumental record explores cinematic themes as well as deeply enigmatic archetypes. Beginning with dawn, listeners are brought through a full contemporary day on earth, replete with androids intoning from mountain tops, apocalyptic carousels, D.C. wormholes, Ballard dance music, dystopian architecture, Carpathian truckers, and serene sunsets, to name a few. Garhart works from a visual perspective throwing the listener into worlds imaginary and frighteningly real.
