Jefferson Pitcher – Now the Deer

You can always count on the fantastic record label Tape Drift to deliver the goods. Both visually and sonically, their releases are consistently groundbreaking and always beautiful. The release that has stuck with me the most lately is this wonderful CD edition of Jefferson Pitcher‘s naturalistic masterpiece Now the Deer. It’s a record made of sweeping string movements and subtle expressions of ghostly musical discussions. The occasional humming viola floats above gently plucked banjos, often melting into brief melodic piano parts. This is Americana that sounds both vast and intimate. Each copy packaged with a unique photo taken by Pitcher, this release comes highly recommended.
