ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Unquiet Myths is a new suite of electroacoustic pieces by William Harper. Like all sorts of myths, these unquiet inventions will take you to places foreign and familiar; sometimes funny, often unsettling.

Track 8: IronSwan & GoldGirl - double-dutch girls with harps clapping up a yodeler, vanquished by bagpipes like seven swans a-skirling.

Track 2: Cargo Cult - hear a tune you must have heard before somewhere, maybe your mom was humming it in the kitchen before she caught fire.

Track 5: Unconditional Infrastructure - consider what pay-phones would be like if you were cooler than an Ozark Mountain Daredevil but your car won’t start.

Unquiet Myths follows Harper's 2002 release, The Banjo of Death Sleeping, which remains in regular rotation in the cars of hipsters, professors, dancers, and people's dads.

The Banjo of Death Sleeping is an electroacoustic triptych; three suites of ambitious, sweeping music in which banjos, children’s song, choirs and rock guitars are hacked about and reassembled. His operatic experimentalism is highly accessible, founded on a thigh-slapping, homespun yet romantic perversity…Surrender to his vision and you’ll be transported on his rhythmic momentum through cinematic landscapes while girls sing of marriage and choirs pound our chords like Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana.
Clive Bell The Wire February 2004
