Joe’s duo-collaboration with Angry Cops guitarist Ben Echeverria filled several 4-track tapes with meandering sorta-nowhere jams on acoustic guitar and cardboard box percussion. Doubtless there were some good songs in there, but as for me personally, I couldn’t sit through most of it, so I had no idea what to expect once they actually assembled an album out of it. It ended up being miles from what I’d expected: one single long track, assembled through computer-aided editing and overdubs, themed around, and glued together with footage recorded during, a camping trip that Joe and Ben took together. The vibe is about as loose and back-porch as it gets; listening to this piece feels like a really laid-back time hanging out with comfortable old friends, who also happen to be a little bit nuts. Oh, and you’re all on shrooms.
