Califone - Echo MineLabel: Jealous Butcher Records
LP, Purple Vinyl
Echo mine is califone’s score to Robyn Mineko Williams’ dance.
“The movement and the music started together and grew together, like two clear entities. At times totally intertwined and at other times bouncing off one another, sort of like reflections. Ben Massarella, Brian Deck and I worked in a way that felt like a return to home; Brian handling the engineering, electronics, drums and overall sound of the piece, Ben adding percussion, feel, essential textures and colours. I felt like my job was to hover over all of it like a moth. Find melody in everything, leave openings for everyone to work at the top of their creativity. We made our album, Roomsound in much the same way (almost 20 years ago). Three of us in a studio – Be humans. Play together as much as possib;e. A good feel beats perfection every time.”
