The Dead Texan - s/t LP
This is the first vinyl issue of the sole The Dead Texan album originally released in May of 2004. Another sweeping album from Stars Of The Lid and Aix Ee Klemm member Adam Wiltzie, this time under his Dead Texan moniker. Eleven mini-symphonies of nocturnal psychedelia and reverie-inducing soundcraft, propelled with piano, strings, and Wiltzie's surreal smear of guitars.
"Stars Of The Lid's Adam Wiltzie presents a collection of drone compositions that he considered too aggressive for his parent band—which means they range somewhere between a whisper and a shout. The sense of cathedral-like reverence is balanced with extreme intimacy." — Pitchfork
"This is quite possibly the best music available for slowly drifting into dreamland. Equal parts intrigue and sedative, The Dead Texan is an elegantly hypnotic album that manages to freeze time in addition to passing it." — Tinymixtapes
"The Dead Texan remains a remarkably subtle and tranquil work. Disarmingly lovely..." — Textura
