Taylor Deupree - Landing [Room40 - 2007]Landing is a small audio treat from Taylor Deupree-clocking in near the twenty minute mark. It finds him stepping away from the snow bound and icy wonder of his last full length the wonderfully Northern- breathing in more of a feeling of spring days, the land coming awake with greenery and gentle hovering butterflies and opening flowers.
There’s is more defined acoustic instrumentation and less hazy feel about the sound here compaired with Northern. It’s often crystal clear like due drops, in its exquisite ringing guitar tones- that murmur of both country and folk, As well as the more expected ambeint and melodic airs.
On offer are three tracks in all- each curled with a sun licked and surrounded by beauty vibe. It brings to mind mid mourning walks through vast green fields, fresh green corn up past your knees, the sun just starting to warm your skin. Or Dusty roads that turn into tracks and disappear in to wildflower filed forests. Gathering shadows and bird calls of a spring evening, with the air cooling it’s back inside to watch the beautiful sun setting over a placid lake through large bay windows. Really a breath taking combination of organic and electronic tones.
With Landing Deupree has once more manged to build soothing and involving sound memories, that are as rewarding as they are comforting and perfectly formed. It’s just a pity it’s over so quick; though of course you can set it on repeat a few times which is most satisfying. To find out more & buy direct go to here.
