Ed Askew :: Rainbow Bridge (OSR Tapes) CASSETTE

$7.50 CAD
From the OSR Tapes Website:
he walked ten miles , he walked twenty miles // looking for the face of love // but what does this face look like
in a mirror ? // is it your face , is it his face ? // somebody said : the face of love is a stream in the dust

Ed says : "this album was recorded and mixed on cassette tape from May 98 through Feb 99.
it was mostly played on a Yamaha 360 electronic piano, using the keyboards drum machine
and other sounds besides the "piano". the title came from a film i once saw about Jimi
Hendrix." I say : I met Ed & his music during bad , questioning times in early '14 .
immediately on hearing/seeing his voice & attendant hand motions my increasingly anemic
hope for musical community was fully resuscitated & absolved of shame for its nudity .
Ed's been making his beautiful music -- emphasis on his -- for a while now (paintings ,
too) & this perserverence , to my mind , equals valor . Rainbow Bridge is an awesome
slice of late-'90s multitrack Askew à la Little Houses . Ed is the only person I know
who sings like a poet & writes like a singer . I just don't know what else to say about
this gorgeous album of humble truth & certain melody . except : thanks Ed , keep it up !
