Joel P West and the Tree Rings / Norman – Split Vinyl [TCR002]

Portland, Oregon  based indie label Timber Carnival Records has many great artists on their roster and have pressed several releases with us. This is the second one I’m telling you all about; a split 7″ released in limited 250 copies.

First side (depending how you look at it) is Joel P West and the Tree Ring‘s tune “Dreams Where I am Sleeping.” A somber and minimalistic tune with drum, guitar, strings and a beautiful voice. It’s a perfect mix of reflection with simple, yet deep lyrical content.

 

Alternatively, the other side contains a collective of area musicians that go by the name Norman. They were formed initially by Eric Nordby in 2004 and eventually became a large group of individuals whose “exploration in music, art, and culture” really make the ears happy. They contribute “No Clouds”, which you can hear a live version from the Doug Fir in Portland here on YouTube.
