Twister in the Ocean
Cracked-up bedroom punk and soft silvery folk. Sweet soul and sugar pop. Vulnerability and experience. An album that feels at once like an intoxicating debut and a mature masterpiece. Recorded in less then a week in Arlo's Dad's living room in El Paso, Texas (February 23rd-February 28th, 2010). The band is Aisling Cormack on guitar, violin, and vocals; Arlo Klahr on guitar and vocals; Kiki Solis (Kid Congo & The Pink Monkey Birds, Rhythm of Black Lines, Knife in the Water, Pink Nasty) on bass, horseteeth organ, additional guitars, and backing vocals; and Matthew Schmitz (Sleeper Car, Electric Funeral, Dirty Black) on drums, percussion, additional guitars, and backing vocals. With additional help from family and friends. Particulary David Klahr on harmonica and Sito Negron and Steve Barowsky on percussion. Back and front cover art by Arlo Klahr.
