Rick Rizzo and Tara Key Dark Edson Tiger

Eleventh Dream Day's Rick Rizzo and Antietam's Tara Key collaborate on this beautiful collection of instrumental tracks. Very filmic in conception, the album's warm melodies create an exquisite ambient serenade. Not only have Rizzo and Key been close friends for a long time, but it is interesting, in light of this particular collaboration, that both of these artists were brought to the world of music through the urgency of punk rock in the late '70s. The two have evolved artistically to the point of developing this calming introspective work. (Thrill Jockey)
