TIM HEIDECKER

Titanic And Other Songs

(Orion Read - OR10) LP $23.00 (Out-of-stock)

After reading that Bob Dylan’s Tempest album includes a fourteen-minute song about the Titanic, comedian Tim Heidecker set out to record an equally epic song about the ship, to “see if I could beat the master to it.” The rhyming ballad begins in 1912 and ends in the present day with James Cameron’s decision to re-release The Titanic (1997) in 3-D. The album also includes a cover of Dylan’s “All the Tired Horses” (1970), along with previously unreleased songs inspired by: the failed sequel to suburban biker movie Wild Hogs (2007); life at home; an assignment from a friend; and fear of death and earthquakes. Edition of 500.

(Hanson - HN100) CD $11.00

(Orion Read) Used LP $10.00

Deep stuttering bass, high streams of electronics, rugged tape manipulation, horns, glass — just an enormous spectrum of sound. The calm intensity of John Olson, Nate Young and Aaron Dilloway’s wildly bizarre sonic experiments and masterful compositional moves contain some of the most minimal programming in their catalog while the editing and mastering are nothing short of inspired.
