"Mostly recorded during a year in Las Cruces, New Mexico with a reverb unit and other gear found in a spider- and cat-infested geodesic dome in the desert. "Smoke" is a mottled sound diary of sweltering mutant pop, distressed voices, sweaty-dense-and-deep drone in a wider, darker sky, wretching cassettes, sparse stone garden melody, gamelan, plus a lengthy field recording of an exorcism in India that was interrupted by a wandering bull. All tracks evoke an overwhelming sense of HEAT and empty SPACE, LIFE and DEATH, distance, isolation - carved withbroader, more direct gestures than Jeff's previous releases, but still with flourishes of his trademark bewildering, confusing sonic style. Pro-printed jacket, 300 copies." (label info)
