The third full-length release from The Blithe Sons, the duo of Loren Chasse (Coelacanth, Thuja, Of) and Glenn Donaldson (Skygreen Leopards, The Birdtree, Thuja). Compiled from performances that took place under a creek bridge in San Gregorio and inside WWII-era bunkers on sea cliffs in the Marin Headlands, California

The Blithe Sons conjure an imaginary wilderness through the sounds made within mysterious locales, combining Chasse's leanings towards tones and percussive textures with Donaldson's folk-inflected melodies.

Chasse and Donaldson use acoustic guitar, harps, bells, harmonium, toy-amplifiers, gongs submerged in a creek, cymbals, battery-powered keyboards, vocals, banjo, birds, pipes, bell-blocks, drums, branches and the location itself as an instrument, to weave these minimalist hymns.

" ... an album of near-religious devotion, a tome of sweetly psychedelicised sounds for those still learning." -- Jon Dale, Signal To Noise


released April 22, 2003

Recorded, Performed By – Glenn Donaldson, Loren Chasse

The Blithe Sons San Francisco, California

The Blithe Sons was the duo of Loren Chasse and Glenn Donaldson. "... everything that is holy and sacred at the crossroads of acoustic instrumentation / distant outsider songcraft and droning / site-specific sound research." -- Keith Fullerton Witman
