Side B is a devastating whirlpool cliff walk based on a song written and sung by the DarkDarkDark band. Backup fingers by Alec K Redfearn of the Eyesores fame.

Title: This Is Folk Music
Format: CD
Label: Last Visible Dog
Country: USA
Price: $12.50
"Now heres an odd one. Mudboy makes and recreates old circuit bent church organs, customising and retrofitting old keyboards for his own nefarious means. Then he plays rich music that hints at psychedelia and drones on them, mixing in field recordings, noise and complementary sounds, and even the odd drum sound that sounds like hes been let loose on Aphex Twin circa Ambient Works 85-92 s drum machine. At times it sounds like a primitive electronica, far abstracted from the hyper-beats of so-called IDM, and reclaimed for the contemplative and wide-eyed explorers and discoverers of new territories and new states of mind." - Last Visible Dog.

Title: This Is Folk Music
Format: LP
Label: Weird Forest
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Raphael Lyon is the enigma known as Mudboy. From the incredibly detailed art/packaging to bizarre mp3 releases attached to scrap metal or plant matter to Freddy Krueger-inspired art installations, Lyon has always been one of the strangest cats on the scene. This unique perspective also infects his music. Whereas many of todays kosmiche-influenced artists bubble up from the noise scene (with knob-twiddling pedal pusher seemingly a prequisite to sequencing synth jammer these days), Mudboys work hints more toward the avant-garde as well as a touch of the classical. Originally released on CD in 2005, This Is Folk Music finds Lyon placing each sound with purpose and carefully sequencing the songs to create a dark, slightly twisted yet strangely beautiful soundscape. Listen to the gunshot crack that kicks the album into high gear on Solitron Wave, the seamless transition from the sparkling melody of Running into the jungle rhythms of Beirut Dance Party, even commonplace field recordings of waves and night sounds take on a different dimension in Lyons hands. This Is Folk Music may have been his first major release but already, all the trademark elements are present: the skewed aesthetic, the attention to detail and especially, the strong compositional sense. This is Mudboy. Art/layout by Raphael Lyon. Vinyl reissue specially re-sequenced by the artist. Limited edition of 500 includes 22" x 22" insert with mp3 download of the album in its original form." -Weird Forest
