The polar opposite of our last post, Luke Morris’ debut album, “Paper Street,” sounds like an experimental record from another planet. Gorgeous textures built from completely alien sounds line the sample track, “Evil Winds”, available on Luke’s site. And we’re figuring there’s a lot more sonic brilliance where that came from, based on his description:
“Paper Street is my debut album, which is under the anonymity of my alias ‘the Brilliant Forest’. People have described the music as “Xiu Xiu’s little brother,” “sounding like the more experimental side of the Microphones,” and “not like anything else (no, that wasn’t an insult).” I decided to use Jewelboxing because it looked amazing, and the lovely humor of the staff (as apparent on the website; that alone sold me). I haven’t been dissapointed. People tell me all the time that my CDs look amazing.”
Go pick yourself up a copy. And while you’re at it, pick up a few extras for the fine people in New York, Fresno, Foster City, Gilroy, Culver City, Metairie, Edison, Leeds, Coral Gables, Cambridge, Beverly Hills, Arlington Heights, Culver City, Flagstaff, Little Rock, Armadale, Grass Valley, Portland, Chicago, Santa Barbara, and Marietta.
