Bad Timing (LP)

Label: Drag City

Format: LP

Genre: Experimental

Out of stock

Make no mistake, Bad Timing is not a pop album by any standards. But it is a musing on popular standards and uses much of the same instrumentation that many of our country's most popular records have. Yes, Bad Timing is a theme record, Jim O'Rourke's pop opera, just waiting for someone to come along and play with it. Based on Fahey-esque 6-string acoustic guitar foundations, each of the three pieces expand to include other musical elements. Piano, organ, electric guitar, brass, strings -- everything, it seems except vocals! Think of the impressionist Americana of Van Dyke Parks and the soundtracks of Jack Nitzsche

A four-part meditation on groove, repetition and musical archeology. Accessible but never easy, beautiful but never shallow, this is a record you'll go back to again and again. (Boomkat)
