is the project of Oregon-based vocalist and
Thomas Meluch who used
treated guitars, percussion, dulcimer, samples and field recordings
to craft the simple, dreamy and hazy songs of the
EP Enge (Moodgadget, 2005) and of
Precis (Kranky, 2006).
The latter opens with the industrial-scale cacophony of La Guerre De Sept Ans, but then indulges in relatively harmless lullabies
that make Devendra Banhart sound experimental.
The arrangements of Together & Down and Palimend,
as well as the Simon & Garfunkel-ian vocals and jangling guitar of Needle & Thread, show his talent as a pop auteur, but
the brief interludes that should attest to his membership in the digital
generation (such as the instrumental collage of Patter) offer too little
to distinguish him from old-fashioned singer-songwriters.
Temper (2008) was another example of bedroom digital folk that invested
in all three dimensions: creative lyrics, creative melodies and creative sonics.
