Album Notes
The Aquarium School single (b/w Dances with Elsa) is old school art-rock-- “deceptively catchy, hypnotically growling, post-Velvets grooves” says NY Music Daily, “a unique stew of riffs” (The Aquarian). A 7" Vinyl version available at the band's official website.
The themes are conformity, transparency and the golden rule, led by Arad Evans (Glenn Branca, Rhys Chatham) vox and guitar and Peter Zummo's solo trombone. Zummo was most famously in The Lounge Lizards; he is also heard with Peter Gordon’s Love of Life Orchestra and numerous other projects. With bassist Ernie Brooks, Peter collaborated with Arthur Russell and in the tribute Arthur’s Landing. Ernie shaped modern underground music, with the original Modern Lovers, and in bands led by Elliott Murphy, David Johansen, Gary Lucas and Jerry Harrison.
The accordion counterpoint is used as an acoustically more interesting classic rock organ. Violin and powerful backing vocals by Jennifer Coates focus and drive the chorus. Coates, new to Heroes of Toolik, is a noted old time fiddle specialist who performs regularly with her own band in that genre. The single is her first recording with Toolik and the sound has evolved significantly since the band’s first effort, the full length ‘Winter Moon’ issued in late 2012.
