Bird By Snow – “Antlers and The Sun and All The Things That Grow Old and Pas ” – [Gnome Life]

Sidereal and wintry work hewn by Fletcher Tucker (vox, gtr,
autoharp, banjo, keyboards, loops, whistle) & Spencer Owen
(percussion, bass) whilst awaiting the arrival of Spring in Santa Cruz,
2004-2005. Languid and impossibly spent, musty in antiquarian
repose, a funereal banjo-[as-ukelele] below blackened skies,
winter-as-denouement, & sedulous mortality begetting the guile
inside hibernation?..dead deer & termites, the fern host to bark
beetles, BIRD BY SNOW is to folk what cave paintings are to
post-expressionism – a foreshadow of gestalt whose configuration
is so unified & elemental, that its properties cannot be derived ?
neither by a summation of parts or even by the detritus of modern
malaise that made this project necessary?.. blustery and just
possibly, the New Archaic.
