Jason Martin Adirondack Power & Light LP
“Brooklyn-based musician and visual artist Jason Martin records on 4 track near his upstate NY home in a haunted cabin by a lake that used to be a valley of towns and Indian settlements. Some of them were his ancestors. This album crashes through deconstructed folk, gospel-tinged noise, a Nick Lowe-esque pop song about women turning men into horses to whip and ride through the woods (actual legend from the region), while soundscapes string it all together. Well-researched liner notes explain the history, while the LP puts it into sound. With a nearly 20 year-long discography, Jason made music throughout the 90’s with Schenectady’s collective BROWN CUTS NEIGHBORS, and has been in the groups LETTUCE LITTLE, ATLANTIC DRONE, EVOLUTION REVOLUTION, CORCRAFT, THE BUNNYBRAINS, and DENIM AND DIAMONDS. His love of glamorous, paganistic animism surfaces in his music as well as videos, drawings, and performances. This LP is no exception as it creaks, moans and shimmies with voices of the undead in catchy little ditties such as “Witch”, ”White Horse”, “Body in the Water” and other hits. High quality screen-printed sleeves, hand stamped labels, hand-numbered.”
