Music has a spirit beyond tune and tempo. Music is alive. It occupies a space in time. One beat follows another, creating a rhythm. âBad music makes you weak,â as the late, great Charlie Freeman used to stay. Stands to reason good music has the opposite effect.
The music in this recording will transport you to somewhere else, a made-up place that has never been. Part Morocco, part prewar Berlin, St. Louis with a touch of Hollywood. Sit back and put some gin in your glass. Let the gypsies carry you away. Youâre taking off for parts unknown, to your own private Casablanca.
The shadows are deep and dark. The women are spectacular and forbidding; the men are world-worn and mustachioed. Sirens and gauchos, holy virgins and matadors, legionaries and ladies of the night. A midnight meeting at the barricade. Film noir meets epic theater, Captain Beefheart meets Edith Piaf. One way or the other, this music will uplift and enhance your life. You will have more than you do. Listen and enjoy.
Jim Dickinson Independence, Mississippi
At the invitation of legendary producer Jim Dickinson, Watts and Boister traveled to Mississippi in the summer of 2008 to record Some Moths at Dickinsonâs Zebra Ranch studio. Dickinsonâwho has worked with the likes of Bob Dylan, The Replacements, Big Star, and Aretha Franklinâwas blown away by the sessions. âIâve recorded stranger music, but none better,â he says, pointing to Wattsâ âLimesâ and âOld House,â and a version of Brechtâs âSong of the Eighth Elephantâ as particular favorites. âThis music is virtually unclassifiable, but it will connect with anyone who appreciates a band that can reference Edith Piaf and Captain Beefheart in the same set.â
Over the past few years, Boister has been featured on NPR (the segment âMusic from Madnessâ is archived at www.npr.org), played The Kennedy Center and Torontoâs NXNE festival, and earned a great deal of critical acclaim.
Some Moths represents something of a departure for the group, as Watts stripped much of the material down to its melodic and lyrical core. Curt Heaveyâs masterful banjo playingâwhich Dickinson likens to flamencoâwas added to instrumentation that already included bass clarinet, trombone, guitar, piano, bass, accordion, and drums.
Working his magic, Dickinson recorded 13 brand new songs, completely live. He claims they âmake Tom Waits sound like a sissy.â
The cover art was created by Mary Hambleton, who won a prestigious Guggenheim last year.
