soundBarn: Tomorrow and End of the Season
Two new releases from guitar deconstructionists Thomas Lail and Patrick Weklar continue their exploration of the outer realms of the instrument. Drawing their name from the cavernous reverberating room where they record, over-processed Jazzmaster guitars sputter, snarl, drone, and chime with smoky trails of feedback framing a journey into sound itself.
Recorded live to two-track at The soundBarn, May-July 2015 End of the Season features four enveloping tracks with Thomas Lail & Patrick Weklar onprocessed/prepared guitars, devices, electric organ, bells, etc. Cover image by John Lopez
"The clanging metallic scrapes of Russell/Morley and Moore/Ranaldo are the starting points, yet these two extend the path into infinity. Take the ride." TapeDrift Records
"The connection between the music of soundBarn and Sonic Youth is apparent on the duo’s 2011 CD Valentine whereby–true to Sonic Youth ideals–the duo utilizes prepared guitars to create sprawling tracks loaded with feedback-laced mayhem.". WBNY Upstate SoundScape
