DW008 Alligator Crystal Moth / Bones of the Great Divide
Alligator Crystal Moth is the trans-Pacific duo of Brad Rose (the North Sea, Ajilvsga, the Foxy Digitalis webzine/CD labels, etc.) and Michael Donnelly (Brothers of the Occult Sisterhood, Terracid, the MusicYourMindWillLoveYou label, etc.), and this is their third full-length collaboration. While previous works developed as long-distance tape-trading deals, Bones of the Great Divide was recorded in some epic in-person sessions last summer in Oklahoma, & it's much free-er and looser than earlier ACM - tranced-out string-bend percussive rattle scatter'n'shake'n'drone, all-acoustic ethnological forgeries from a landscape where the rainforest meets the great plains. Two CDs, 11 tracks.
