about

lmntl819 & reindeer united under the harvest moon of 2006 to begin work on the preparation of songs to form their debut collaborative effort ‘views from the psychedelik deathcab’. driven by the darkest of seasons and the isolation and cold therein, they saw to compose a series of musical sound-pieces to evoke frozen incantations of the dark of the winter solstice and beyond. both drawing heavily from their environments, lmntl819 from the snowy depths of northern quebec and reindeer from the frozen woodland groves of the surrey foothills; their songs score the creaking timbers of a stove-warmed cabin remote and far off distant within a winters dream. the wind howls and the thunder rumbles low as the ancient woods heave ‘neath the turmoil. the cello and violin tumble and soar in desperate action as the pots and pans clatter to the sound of the guitar and banjo hammering out the desperate tune in frozen fingers gliding. all this bolstered under the weight of the thick swathes of drum breaks to paint a bleak and stirring canvass on which stolen voices cast their chilled and oftentimes desperate prose. views from the psychedleik deathcab is a slow procession into the frozen depths of that most darkest of seasons and just the beginning of a longer path yet un-traversed…

joined by the incredible musical talents of jenny blackbird, jamie romain and michael rea, lmntl819 has created a lavish, rich and truly cinematic soundscape of ten songs on which reindeer has delved deep into the very abyss of his work to construct some of his most visually striking, driven and indeed heartfelt prose. joined on numerous tracks by a host of some the greatest emcees currently operating within the international underground scene, three quarters of the papervehicle crew; the beastmaster, mildew and edison, babel fishh and evak1, filkoe176, swordplay, jamesphoney and wormhole, the album is awash with searing displays of both lyrical and vocal execution. cascading verses give way to near-silent passages of quiet uneasy contemplation as the sound of the open fire crackles before another wave of the storm comes crashing in upon thunderous breaks and awkward clattering of rusted machinery. views from the psychdelik deathcab is surely a formidable proposition on paper which does indeed managed to translate into the vocabulary of the multi-faceted alt-rap scene as it stands at the dawn of this new year of our lord 2009.
