'Fading Shadows'' marks part six on the 'C Side' re-release journey.
Returning to previous themes of metaphoric iconography, catharsis through struggle and skewed romance, this collection rambles through a variety of sonic styles. Big drums, soft piano, epic guitar solos, acoustic sweetness and old time harmonies appear in a diverse miscellany of sound. Each track has been remastered while peaks, hiss and live errors are retained for an authentic garage experience.
As with previous 'C Side' titles, the story is woven across seven songs, presented on a single continuous track. Much of the material draws on periods of extreme emotional turmoil, a beneficial energy for the subject matter. While 'Fading Shadows' touches on both universal and internal questions, each song stands alone as an autobiographical portrait told through poetic device and external inspiration.
This compilation features new and old songs, as well as antique and modern instrumentation. An odyssey of rough, sweet, dour and upbeat, 'C Side Volume 6' is a unique window into the heart of a crazy artist.
