Dredd Foole: Daze On The Mounts CD
"The Foole, aka Dan Ireton, has finally come out and ended a near decade of silence and Daze on the Mounts, a spiraling three-dimensional crest of the so-called avant-folk expression, is the celebratory homecoming.
Originally a limited 2004 CD-R, this reissue presents the colossal side for all. In collaboration with Matt Valentine and Erika Elder (MV&EE/Bummer Road and Tower Recordings), two of modern-time's purest interstellar travellers, Dredd Foole bounds between Tim Buckley-esque bellow and a hyper-extended take on the song form (a dewy mash of Ra-space and Vermont-lore) alongside environmental treatments (harmonica, synthesizer, percussion) and his own acoustic guitar work to fully transcend limitations. From the visceral '80s garage days with The Din to becoming a beacon for many a free folk explorer, the Foole remains a bona fide master of universal revelation."Forced Exposure
