"Wonderful archival tracks by a Louisville collective, whose 2007 LP on Siltbreeze remains a favorite. These are both vaguely train songs (or so they'd have us believe), but it sounds more like a gang of young hobos attempting to steal some of the late 1960s Grateful Dead's deeper thoughts about trains, right straight out of their heads. Spacey but grounded, and somewhat high on laudanum. It's a good damn sound." - Byron Coley, The Wire, 2013

Recorded in 2005 at the same sessions that produced the Mortise and Tenon LP (Siltbreeze, 2007). “L&N” is a slow-burning elegy on the Louisville & Nashville Railroad (1850-1982), a soundtrack for the contemplation of what we can and can’t leave behind. “Payne Hollow Stomp” picks up speed and condenses the density of the A side, moving from the rails to an open road or better yet the rolling Ohio River on which sits Payne Hollow, the simple waterfront homestead of Harlan and Anna Hubbard (1900-1988; 1902-1986), two exemplary Ohio Valley post-Thoreau, pre-Back-to-the-land simple-life seekers.

Proceeds from the sale of this record in digital and physical form will be donated to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
