Minnesota duo If Thousands
(guitarist Aaron Molina and keyboardist Christian Mcshane)
recorded the droning music of
Candice Recorder (Sursumcorda, 2001 - Silber, 2014), with the
slow-moving cinematic Things in Symbols and
especially the mournful cosmic vision of Kasio,
as well as the more disjointed and abstract Atrocious
(but also the With a Voice as Big as a Tree, that harks back to
Leo Kottke's country watercolors).
Yellowstone (Chairkickers, 2002) displayed a more refined and subliminal
with the faint barely-alive twelve-minute Yellowstone
the majestic and threatening With all the Saints
and the fluttering, cosmic We Sent HLRE.
Lullaby (Silber, 2002) added
the solemn and fragile requiem-like To Shine on him one Last Time that
segues into He Had The Smell Of Wyoming Sagebrush and
the stately glacial Our Lives Will Never Be The Same.
The much too fragmented I Have Nothing (Silber, 2005) boasted nonetheless
two small jewels of psychological music:
Cymbol, overflowing with a sense of fear and loneliness, and
Walking Otis, a neurosis of the otherworldly emptiness.
After a long hiatus they released For (Silber, 2014).
