In the Sparkin Age of the Great White Horse is the new cassette from Spectre Folk, nearly 50 minutes of psych-ish folk-leaning rock fog that is destined to melt into your dashboard this summer The tracks are culled and clipped from the sessions that produced Spectre Folks most recent LP, Compass, Blanket, Lantern, Mojo. Here in the sparking age, Pete Nolans mood seems, lighter and brighter -¢‚Ǩ‚Äú theres less mystic nursery hush and a much more saturated stain of the pink-orange ice cream colors of a Pacific sunset. True to form, there are forlorn fingerpickers and some quiet, noisy stretches that feel like a walk alone in the woods at night, but the tape also finds Nolan making organic noises with his noisemaking machinery: a tube amp makes thundercloud sounds on a track thats got the hazy warmth of a summer day begging for a rainshower; synths burble, ominously at first, then dissolve into the a sound like passing cars on the highway, before a couple guitars, intertwined, come in at a glacial gallop marching the tape along. And the albums rockers show Nolans increasing comfort with extended form guitar solos that saunter into and out of wild crescendos and murky valleys like its the easiest, most natural thing in the world for the music to do." - Arbitrary Signs.
