ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A decade in the making, The Man in the Silver Box is a full-fledged throwback to the concept record days of the Beatles, the Who, and Pink Floyd, a 46-minute deliberation on madness and compassion filled with Luke Zimmerman’s poetic turns of phrase that cut into the human experiences of love, sadness, isolation and redemption, all set to a dreamy sonic landscape. With moments of jarring distortion mixed with sparse meditation, The Man in the Silver Box surprises with dynamic ranges from bombastic to near-silence, with flourishes of organic guitars and piano layered with soft synths underneath Zimmerman’s literary lyrics. The music varies in style from song to song, sweeping the listener through many moods, though it is tied together thematically, in both the words and also with a symphonic theme that weaves its way through the record like a memory. With songs about the media, depression, memory, and healing, it is a record to meditate on, to be led through while you are staring out the window of a bus, thinking about old friends and the crazy state of the world.

The Man in the Silver Box was recorded and mixed by Luke Zimmerman at The Bonus Room, Zimmerman’s personal studio, with Luke Anderson on the drums. Zimmerman played all of the rest of the instrumentation. The album was mastered by Tom Garneau. The Man in the Silver Box will be officially released Tuesday, August 20th, 2019.
