Description

Curtain Speech on CD

After hearing only two demo songs, and with no performance history to speak of, Asthmatic Kitty Records invited David Stith to write and record an album. Stith's debut on the label comes in the form of 'Curtain Speech', an aptly titled EP that serves as an introductory tease for his forthcoming debut full-length, 'Heavy Ghost'. The music calls to mind contemporaries Antony and the Johnsons, Grizzly Bear, and sometimes the explosiveness of Animal Collective. However, a handful of other influences cloud the comparison as hints of the dissonance of Sonic Youth and Henryk Gorecki, expressive vocal techniques of Caeta no Veloso and Mary Margaret O'Hara, and the romance and textures of Benjamin Britten and Edwar d Elgar underpin even the simplest of gestures. Includes appearances by Sufjan Stevens & My Brightest Diamond.
