Dude is from Chi-city, is a part of 90 Day Men and has recorded with TV On The Radio. This is nothing like TVOTR, however. The write-up that Reckless did on this says "...it's three improvised tracks of psychedelic folk mantra/raga drone aktion. Culling the spirits of La Monte Young, Meredith Monk and John Fahey (I have no idea who those people are). It's a tour de force (I hate that phrase) of twilight meditation and eternal reflection. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED (they probably just say that to get you to buy it)."
Well worth my 16 duckets.
