Notes and Editorial Reviews

In what has become a cult holiday tradition, Phil Kline (guitarist with Glenn Branca) goes 'electronic caroling' through the streets of Greenwich Village with a parade of boomboxes. Kline creates a euphoric blend of other-worldly voices and bells. This is the first recording of this 21st century ritual. An avant-garde stocking stuffer! Top CDs of 2001; 'It's rare when a record for the season also makes a bid for record of the year.' -- K. Leander Williams, Time Out NY 'Rich and strange... surprisingly beautiful.' -- John L.
