Wooden Circle continues the duo's usual themes of summer sun, impending doom, cicadas, feedback, tall pines swaying in the night, middle age, loud combo organ, the sky open wide, two sisters in the fifties, ba ba ba ba ba da de da, farfisa mornings, red Trans-Ams, barking dogs, Kay twelve-strings, lovely stories about the coast of California over a tea, square waves, painted ponies going up and down, red Harmony, wet blades of grass, elderly men lost on the side of the road, and young people going in circles with no way home. Plus a Gene Clark song.
Written, recorded and mixed at Franklin Street and Sprague Street on the trusty Porta Two 4-track (3,5,7,13,14), the iffy 488 8-track (2,4,6,8,9,10) and the occasional digital contraption (1,11,12).
Recording started in the summer of 2004 and ended in the summer of 2011, except for guitars on “Daily Drone” which were recorded at Church Street on the Porta Two in the winter of 1993.
Mud Pie Sun is Steven and Tom puttering around with an odd little vision of popular music. They write and record quiet and loud melodic pop-psych-folkrock-garage-etc. songs in their Philadelphia area homes. Since 1989.
