Unlike plants, mushrooms cannot synthesize their own food from the sun’s energy. They lack chlorophyll – the substance which permits plants to use sunlight to form sugars from the water and carbon dioxide in the air. Mushrooms therefore had to develop special methods of living: symbiosis, saprophytism and parasitism.    Most of the mushrooms growing on the forest floor are intimately linked to trees by symbiosis. This association, called mycorrhiza, occurs between the root ends of a tree...

Written in Japan in 2014 and initially released as a limited run CD for a 2017 Japanese tour, " 来日  / To Japan" is the story of a journey through that beautiful country in search for a way to spare a blossoming love from the wake of the world. Each song was written in the cities they reference, and sound samples recorded in the trains, streets, and izakayas of Japan serve as sonic transitions from place to place. This was a labor of love.

Recorded in various whoever-was-around-that-day lineups onto cassette 4-track, mostly, but some 8-track, too; Tim is a genius with the 4-track, and he'd developed, I guess, extended techniques, where he'd bounce mixes between 4-track machines and fuck with tape-speed and EQ and the natural sound degradation that occurs to make things SUPER psychedelic -- which is, of course, WHERE WE WERE AT.
