about

FROM THE ONE-SHEET:

Bluesanct presents a "forgotten Elephant Micah album" in the form of "Globe Rush Progressions". Found within a pile of discarded CDRs in basement of Bluesanct HQ, the album features a selection of hard-to-find compilation appearances and unreleased recording experiments.

"Globe Rush Progressions" is collected from one-off sessions in the late 2000s, projects approached as a way to test out ideas...an opportunity to break rules...out of curiosity...and in response to invitations...recording in a public stairwell...writing about historical hairstyles...playing back stretched out cassettes...interpreting Big Star...all with a brazen commitment to home-production.

Assembled, the tracks on "Globe Rush Progressions" reflect the more exploratory aspects of Elephant Micah. Somewhere between sound art and song, the release documents Joe O'Connell's work not just as a writer and singer, but also as a recordist and experimenter.

One time pressing of 175 copies, in deluxe sleeves with insert and download.
