Everlasting The Way Long-Stretch-Motorcycle-Hymn-Highway

If you dig the geek rock school that stretches back at least as far as Syd Barrett and encompasses talents as varied as Johnathan Richman, Daniel Johnston, Jad Fair and Lou Barlow, then you might like the lo-fi bargain basement sound of Sean Meadows. Largely instrumental, ranging from the acoustic minimalism of solo guitar bits like the spacey lyricism of "Another Birthday" and "555" to the rudimentary trance groove of the extended "Once The Ocean Floor," this one includes a couple of songs, "One Month Window" and "Day After The Last," that suggest a thoughtful tunesmith in hiding. Cult members have died for way less. (Monitor)
