Published Mar 31, 2014Vancouver experimentalist Lee Hutzulak has been issuing albums with his collective Dixie's Death Pool for more that 20 years, and the latest chapter in the project's lengthy history is Twin Galaxies, which will arrive on April 19 through Leisure Thief.
Most of the album was recorded at Hutzulak's apartment between 2010 and 2013, but it wasn't until he was in Japan on vacation in late 2012 that he began visualizing it as a whole. Some parts were captured outside using a field recorder.
A press release uses phrases like "frenetic shards," "dreamy twang," "epic sweep" and "cerebral spaciousness" to describe the 10 tracks. Interestingly, Hutzulak recored the guitar for closing number "The Hair You'll Never Cut" with his one-month-old son strapped to his chest.
The album cover is above and the tracklist is below. Scroll past that to hear the spaced out "Stella Parallax."
Dixie's Death Pool will launch Twin Galaxies with a gig on April 19 at the China Cloud in Vancouver.
