Andrew Weathers / Ancient Ocean
Split Cassette c44
Rubber City Noise / RCN Recordings
Released April 14, 2012
Split cassette from Chapel Hill to Oakland, California transplant Andrew Weathers and Brooklyn-based John Bohannon (Ancient Ocean). Best described as ambient americana—beautiful, haunting acoustic guitar and vocal ambiance that recalls an amorphous temporal/spatial American landscape. These songs focus on the human emotion inherent in comprehension that spans areas of unfathomable intimacy. Andrew Weathers and Ancient Ocean document the struggle to affirm an independent identity in an ambiguously founded country that, generations removed, moves past guilt and toward transcendental reconciliation. These are songs of a new American folk and a direct line to the rawest feelings of the 21st century. From finger-picked reminiscence to color-washed soundfields and amber waves of ambient—Andrew Weathers and Ancient Ocean create a singular tape that perfectly captures the contradictions and complications of modern American music.
Presented in an edition of 100 cassettes, pro-dubbed and imprinted with pro-printed and scored heavy stock j-cards. Digital download insert included. Design by Charlie Wagers (charliewagers.com).
