DW005 The Clear Spots / Electricity for All
During the Great Depression, “Electricity for All” was a slogan of the Tennessee Valley Authority, part of FDR’s New Deal, as it strove to bring electric power to isolated communities in the Appalachians. Some 70 years later, the Clear Spots commemorate that wiring process by expanding the concept. Drawing on various energies both organic and otherwise, using the barn as a resonator and the holler as a natural amplifier, the trio (plus specialist aetheric-engineering friends) opens an interplanetary conduit between the dirt and the stars, beaming diverse sonic signals out into the void. Is anyone up there listening? Maybe the mountains could say… Two CDs, 17 tracks, 95 minutes.
