ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Intelligent, luxuriant & compelling indie rock/pop/folk. Falls somewhere between Elliot Smith, REM, Radiohead, Nick Drake, The Eels, U2, etc. New album 'Tracing The Cracks' is an album that NEEDS to be heard. It's dreamy, imaginative and inspiring. Listen to it again & again & again..."

- Kings of A&R, New York (April 21, 2003)

**********
Thinland (2001-2007) was an indie pop band based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The band's combination of acoustic and orchestral elements, poignant and introspective lyrics and compelling melodies gave Thinland an unique sound that ranged from acoustic folk songs with string arrangements to indie pop and rock songs with aggressive guitars and melodic hooks.

Thinland's material has been compared to Elliot Smith, Radiohead, The Church, R.E.M., U2, Leonard Cohen, Nick Drake, Beck, The Verve, David Sylvian and the Eels.

Thinland's line-up included Jeff Crandall (guitar/vocals), Jason Fritts (bass/vocals), Aaron Kerr (cello) and Patrick Hennessey (drums). Additional musicians on Tracing the Cracks include Mellow Drunk's Leigh Gregory (guitar), Frank Spencer (dulcimer), Beth Spencer (vocals), Sena Thompson (violin, viola), David Hanners (guitar) and Randy Gildersleeve (slide guitar).

Jeff Crandall and Aaron Kerr reformed as Swallows in the summer of 2007. The new line-up includes multi-instrumentalists Frank Spencer and Tyson Allison (The Sleeper Pins, Gliss).

Tamara Turner, CD Baby

Beautiful.
An ethereal, lush and dreamy expedition into the dark, deep and blue crystal crevasses of David Sylvian, R.E.M., Nick Drake, and Elliot Smith, among others, tumbling their listeners into an emotionally exposed and beautifully melancholy existence. If and when you picture yourself floating through the expanses of space, moving stars and planets with a sweep of the hand, feeling the glows of the galaxy imprint your heart, Thinland will be the soundtrack. Dive into the formless dream worlds and the gloriously powerless zero-gravity of fate... and take this CD with you.

Bueatiful music - #1 CD purchase of 2003! Come to IOWA!!!
Personally, I love the blend of music styles that Thinland's - Tracing the Cracks provides. I was amazed by the lyrical content and how it seems to blend wonderfully with the musical tracks laid down - meaning that you find yourself literally feeling the mood of the lyricist. I bought the CD off the recommendation of a college pal who know's someone in the band. Since then, I have had it on hand and listen to it constantly. I have never written a testimony on anything ever before! Even my Madonna loving pop music listening wife agrees - Thinland is AWESOME! PLEASE COME TO IOWA!
