jay tholen, the low drone of earth

this is a very interesting work, by a very creative person.

this is one of my favorite types of music, kind of a fractured lo-fi pop. the synth and drum machine stuff is super well done. very cool to listen to. great songs and sounds. dreamy. every little melody and motif is well crafted and done, yet it still has a loose vibe. lots of cool layers and moods. a compelling blend of the familiar and the unexpected. here's the bandcamp.
only 50 were made. i have #13. haha, the tape came in a propel zero box with two sea shells and a sticker inside. a nice touch.
