What Is the Sound of
The Delmarva peninsula. Asbury Park, New Jersey. Hermiston, Oregon. Love, Steely Dan, The Butthole Surfers, Autechre. Since 1999 Portland, Oregon's 'The Lawn' have been baffling themselves. They decided to share. 'What is the sound of...' is a question they refuse to answer in words. 4 chords are never enough. A Zen Koan of craftsmanship, honed in obscurity. 14 songs. Languid, fluid, angular, uptight. Disparate elements kiss (metaphorically) in a wood paneled basement. Heavy meadow. The Lawn.
