 Theo Angell (3 Albums, 16 Tracks)

Artist

CURATORS:
LOCATION:Brooklyn, NY

Theo Angell is the son of a minister who grew up in rural Oregon. His sound is unclassifiable, but makes allusions to shape song, spirituals, bluegrass and the blues with some off the wall mysterious psychedelic sensibility overseeing the mood. His albums contain a combination of calliope-like polyphonic vocals followed by mournful dirges shot through with a cartoon foghorn melancholy. (-Maria Levitsky / WFMU)

 "The music sounds like hallucinogenic campfire songs with a UFO hovering above the treeline. There are both crawling dirges and scampering ditties here"   (Todd Simmons in an article about Theo Angell's album Auraplinth)
