Thor & Friends – Self Titled LP

Remember that time you saw Swans and there was that one burly dude playing all kinds of auxiliary instruments while Gira was on his spirit quest? Well, said dude was Thor Harris, and he’s teamed up with Peggy Ghorbani and Sarah Gautier (as well as Jeremy Barnes and Heather Trost of A Hawk & A Hacksaw AND John Dieterich of Deerhoof) for a solo jaunt which is a little bit of a departure from the pummeling dished out by his other band. Here we are presented with some tidal marimba explorations (with some vibraphone, xylophone, organ, voice, mellotron and piano thrown in for good measure.) Some contemplative sounds just in time for the changing of the leaves.

There is a full stream here and the wax is available direct from LM Dupli-cation.
