Is Growing FaithAlbum |
Darker My Love singer's warped psych-pop side project.
One sunny summer day in 1967, The Byrds, The Blues Project, Country Joe and the Fish, Love, Jefferson Airplane, The Move, and Syd Barrett's Pink Floyd gathered for a great big jam out in the middle of a field, taking copious amounts of LSD at the outset. A friend of one of the bands decided to document the momentous occasion by recording it onto cassette, but he was so lysergically discombobulated that he wound up standing on a distant hilltop and pointing his recorder in the opposite direction. Months later, when said documentarian decided to wash the jeans he'd been wearing that day, he left the cassette in the back pocket. By the time the tape emerged from the washing machine's spin cycle and the subsequent sauna effect of the dryer, the tones it contained had become warped, bent, waterlogged, and otherwise manipulated into a funhouse mirror of the original sounds, with a net effect that was somehow even more psychedelic than what was captured on tape to begin with. This historic recording was finally released in 2011 as Is Growing Faith, under the name White Fence. That's our story and we're sticking to it.
