Description

Theo first emerged from New York's experimental
music scene more than decade ago as a founding member of Hall of Fame
and later as a recording and touring member of Portland-based sound
provocateurs Jackie O'Motherfucker. More recently, Theo has been
exhibiting video work and creating new solo material. Upon hearing the
material that would make up Dearly Beloved, we were surprised
to discover that Theo's playful approach to music evidenced in these
former outfits has transformed into a batch of fantastic and
well-structured songs, with inventive orchestration and accomplished
playing.
Written and recorded in Portland, at the Rare Book Room (Brooklyn, NY) and Sumsilobatem Studios (Degenfeld, Germany) Dearly Beloved
references a diverse array of sounds: the dark folk of Michael Gira's
Angels of Light; the surreal and gothic lyrical inventions of Nick Cave
and the Bad Seeds; and Syd Barrett's more ambling work, where lyrical
and musical lines veer and coast along without a clear destination.- Amish Records
