"Since The Dissolution Of The Pioneering Free-Folk Collective Tower Recordings, Former TR Guitarist Matthew Valentine (MV) And Vocalist/Multi-Instrumentalist Erika Elder (EE) Have Been Making Strange Rural Magic Together Deep In The Vermont Hinterlands. Their Music Is A Distinctive Blend Of Astral Blues, Creaky Backwoods Ragas, And Ecstatic Post-Arkestral Navigation. Alongside A Revolving Cast Of Collaborators, The Duo Have Issued A Torrent Of Small-Batch Recordings, Most Of Which Have Been Released On Their Own Child Of Microtones Imprint. Their Massive And Overgrown Back Catalog Has Been Crying Out For A Defining Benchmark, And The New Time-Lag 2xcd Set Mother Of Thousands Appears Specially Designed To Meet That Demand. Valentine And Elder Are Joined Here By The Bummer Road, A Talented Quintet Of Musicians That Includes Moses Jiggs On Harmonica, Samara Lubelski On Strings, And Quakebasket's Prolific Tim Barnes On Percussion. While I Don't Typically Hold The Harmonica In High Esteem, Jiggs' Work On Mother Of Thousands Is Consistently Spellbinding. His Shivering, Disembodied Tones Perfectly Complement Valentine's Lead Guitar Figures, Casting Obscure Signals Skyward Like Heatwaves Off A Parched Stretch Of Mississippi Blacktop. Valentine And Elder Share The Vocal Duties Equally, Although Nearly Every Track Is Eventually Allowed To Shake Loose From Its Front-Porch Moorings And Be Carried Away By The Bummer Road's Communal Tides." - Pitch Fork... more details
