Boomkat Product Review:
Having been a long term collaborator with Sonic Youth's Steve Shelley and performing in bands for Cat Power and Mosquito and with Thurston Moore in Male Slut among many others, Two Dollar Guitar's Tim Foljahn is hardly a newcomer to the world of alternative music. On his latest album, a collection of ten lovesongs, Foljahnn shows a sense of world weariness, a sense of mature romance and of doomed desire. All this heavy sentiment combined with Fjoljahnn's distinct sun-baked Americana makes for a startling and memorable album and one fraught with underplayed emotion. Opening with a two minute long instrumental piece 'Blue Coat and Yellow Vest' which takes a repeating guitar fragment and embellishes it with cavernous melodies, it's quite obvious where the record is heading and we haven't even heard the man sing yet. Those distinct tones are introduced on 'Cascade', a slow and pensive love-poem, probably best heard sitting opposite your sweetheart next to a crackling campfire on some American plain or other. You can almost hear the dust blowing and the leaves rustling in the background as you listen through these ten measured works; ghost towns, ranches and dried up rose petals haunt the tracks like the ghosts of America's lost settlers. There is no shortage of this kind of music at the moment, but I feel that Tim Foljahn has a distinct voice, and while he may not have the wide-eyed freshness of M.Ward or the weathered depression of Stuart Staples, his songs have a passion and an honesty that is hard not to become totally absorbed in. Listen and fall in love.
