More Titles Than Tracks (May)

More Titles Than Tracks:
An Excuse to Pillage the Scenic Railroads Vaults

Each month this year I'll be posting unreleased works by Scenic Railroads, my duo with Joe Panzner. Some will come from scrapped projects, some long-forgotten recording sessions, some may even be new. Despite only publishing a handful of releases over our eight-year existence, we've actually been quite prolific in the studio and I look forward to sharing these works.
For this month's offering, we reached as deep as we possibly could, to the oldest Scenic Railroads session we could unearth. (Was there one prior? The jury is still out.)

Despite its 2003 timestamp and the fact that we'd known each other for a few months, the majority of the session was surprisingly coherent and not entirely dated. Here's a clip, Sidetracked in the Hairfield.Hope you enjoy.

Editions Shiflet Mixtape 07:
Exsiccated Deliverables

After a long silence, ES Mixtape series has returned. It's hard to believe 06 came out before the release of Llanos. That seems like eons ago.

The 10 tracks presented here span from 2006 to recent and soon-to-be-released recordings. There are two excerpts from my latest cassette releases, two tracks from forthcoming releases, two live clips, three tracks from the vaults, and one recent recording that just didn't fit in anywhere, but I thought made a good closer here. Enjoy.

01. Honeyed Crest (excerpt)
02. Young Ghosts
03. Live Excerpt [Chicago 3.4.11]
04. Seagull (excerpt)
05. Grey Magick Micro (remix of Wiese material)
06. (Sufferers)
07. Meadowbathers [Panzner Mix] (excerpt)
08. Grazing [live collab with Ryan Jewell]
09. Airmail from Phil
10. Untitled Synthesis
