TAN OR BOIL - SEAMSTRESS IN A SUITCASE (CD)


"Tan or Boil - a pun on the name of bratty short stop from those 1970s Bad News Bears films that stuck - is the alias of the Pittsburgh-born Jason Bacasa. Jason was keen to extend on the bare-bones acoustic style of his songs but had no musical compadres to help out. Andrew then enlisted the unique, multi-instrumental wares of fellow Preservation artist Aaron Martin, with both Aaron and Andrew shaping arrangements with digital files going back and forth across the globe. The songs now have an expansive realm spanning both the baroque and the exotic, and even get beat-happy courtesy of Melbourne-based electronic artist Part Timer. A raw and strange beauty still exists at the core of Seamstress in a Suitcase, though its imaginative kaleidoscopic spin enhances that feeling as well as takes it somewhere else entirely."
