ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is Saint Solitude's first collection of instrumentals; the far reaches, buried treasures, bagged peaks, and near misses of a wayward ear.

While on its surface it bears little resemblance to the technicolor pop of earlier SS records, Dup Crosson's longstanding love of loops persists here in brief, cathartic bursts. Perhaps for the first time in this project's history, tension wins wholeheartedly over resolution in tracks like "Roma" and "The More You Leave Open." The insurrection is suggested but not yet deployed.

Elsewhere, there are forays into Spanish-style classical guitar ("Grenada"), samples, Ennio Morricone-style cowboy whistles ("Didn't Do Enough To Save Him"), an instrument that sounds like a flock of birds, and the closest thing you'll ever hear to a beatbox in an SS song ("No Doom").

One song, "Imaginary Inhabitants," was written for a short film of the same name by Crosson's friend and bandmate Dan Trefethen. The collaboration helped initiate a series of tracks inspired by film.

"I've always been a movie junkie," Crosson says. "It's common practice for me to record with a muted movie on in the background. Images offer a completely different palette for inspiration. They have their own rhythms too. It's long been a goal of mine to write a score, contribute to a soundtrack, or even write a commercial jingle--anything where visual cues act as the starting point."
