Art of Flying
ThOUGH the LIGHT seem SMALL
October 28, 2010
Art of Flying's 7th release: up one minute-down the next, grandiose, eloquent, scattered, trying too hard, taking it easy; where's the thread? just like real LIFE. Try it, you'll like it.
"Journalists talk about Giant Sand & Calexico as if the desert informs & sculpts their recorded output, but I'd like to point anyone looking for some really lost-in-the-high-desert music towards these cats & their damaged tunes. Captivating & fun to listen to, these tracks jump around & cover a bit of sonic territory. Recorded by Mike Stanioch at the Barn Recorder, Questa, NM (a cool adobe building, see tape-op issue #4). Co-produced by band stalwarts David Costanza & Anne Speroni. Mastered by the dashing Jason Ward at Chicago Mastering Service".

"The Art of Flying, from New Mexico, are one of the best kept secrets of American underground music of the new century."
