George and Caplin

Secluded Malls and Scenic Byways/Requiem for an Encyclopedia
Plastic Sound Supply

George and Caplin's latest release is one of a dying breed — an album that demands to be listened to as an album. Yes, there are some fine songs on it that can stand alone (particularly "Wilderness Eyes" and "Wanderin'"), but when taken as a whole, the disc really shows its strength. Each song flows into the next, tiny melodies rise and fall in the mix, gorgeous textures slip and slide over each other, and the full effect is almost intoxicating. As the "bootgazing vaquero manifesto" that informs the album states, "All creations would be at home on an AM radio, in a pick-up truck driven by Brian Eno, on the way to an open ranch" — and that's pretty much a perfect description of what you get here.
