Adair Park Recordings presents to you "Ten Sleep, WY" by Damon Moon And The Whispering Drifters.
"Ten Sleep, WY" was released in February 2012 on the album "Lungs, Dirt And Dreams".
"We have waxed lyrical a few times on MM about the sometimes fractured and ghostly and other times expansive and distorted Americana of Damon Moon & The Whispering Drifters. In fact, Lungs, Dirt, & Dreams is proving to be a real favourite of ours this year.
Good news then that we can bring you another track from it, this time it is the solitary slow wind and sparse picking of The Fool." - Mad Mackeral
"For the majority of the album you maintain a constant pace interceded with uplifting choruses. The combined effect is something that is dominantly more in the neighborhood of swaying and relaxing than a pumping fist held high or a zumba marathon. It is great to contemplate the meaning of life to and less something you would just bang your head at, not that we are against that. The glue that ties it all together is Damon Moon’s voice and an ever present Lap Steel in combination with the driving motivation of guitar, bass, and drums.
Watch out for those little mystery noises we talked about. These tracks are almost like a symphony warming up to something awesome: “June 22, AR”, “We Nominate Ourselves As Heroes Of Our Own Stories”, which ends abruptly like it is letting you know a chapter is over and “Robert Pirsig’s Blues”
The title track “Lungs, Dirt & Dreams” is nestled neatly between “June…” and “We Nominate..” The track has a superstitious quality accompanied by a flux of Moons harmonic story telling over a guitar playing thrust forward into an eerie lap harp, pick scraping down a string and then, bam!, a full music machine lifting us up. “Loose Ends” is found towards the end of the LP and is in line with the more folk sound that the entire album embodies. Watch for the entry of the lap harp verses what sounds like xylophones which melts into the chorus. Both songs have videos. In Loose Ends you can watch Moon destroy a kitchen and staple drawings about the house." - BeAtlanta
