Since 2005 Mouth Dakota has been the lo-fi music project of Justin Wood with roots running deep in Northwest Indiana and Chicago-land. His debut album ‘Vladimir The Platypus’ (2006) was a collection of various home recordings, mostly analog based and recorded on a 4-track. Very few original copies are in circulation but the digital files are available online for free.
Mouth Dakota’s second album ‘The Returning Levellers’ (2009) is a much larger and eclectic collection of home recordings spanning three years, and packed full of life stories from childhood and beyond.
In August of 2012, the third Mouth Dakota album "You, Are The Good Sense" was released. Although still clinging firmly to lo-fi roots, this album has a much more mature & focused sound than the previous two releases; tapping further into brief intimate moments of lush noise, experimental background drones, and finger-style guitar.
