"Because it's cheap and simple to record music now, there's a "sea" of solo laundry room Phil Spectors. But Portland, OR by way of Maui, HI's (yes, he gave up paradise) Tory Fiterre wasn't waiting for technology to ease his way. This is actually his 10th LP going back to 1999, when he only clutched a cassette 8-track. Presently upgraded to 8-track digital, his latest remains unvarnished in sound and nicely wacked in construction. If he grew up digging The Wall, it's actually the "off" quality of Pink Floyd's lost leader Syd Barrett (an uncredited freak-folk founder) solo that registers, as his barely picked guitars and dream-like, oddball-mumbler vocals are bent by mild psychedelia, childlike bells, and bits of white noise space pop. It's like you're listening with a contact high in a room full of weed- it's wonderfully strange."
