found a few last copies…

red records #5... the counterpart to "wings from a storm". acid-dripping lo-fi euphoric melancholy west coast folk beauty from michael curtis hilde. this dude is seriously prolific, with a fine string of cdr only release under the moontainhood and almaden names, but this pair is a real apex of his still unfolding musical vision. "thunderpaint the stone horse electric" is a totally intimate & spontaneously vibed little gem. deeply felt, introverted, hallucinatory, and starry-eyed song stories delivered via fuzzy bedroom fourtrack gush. fevered vocals quiver, warble, double, and swoon around gentle or ragged acoustic guitar, foot-stomping tambourine thud & jingle, harmonium, breezy flute, warm tape hiss, and singing crystal cave atmospherics… we know the animals are dancing…

pressed on 180gm bright red vinyl, with printed, hand stamped, and hand numbered labels. packaged in a foldout cream art paper cover with full sized high quality paste-on art front & back, screen printed interior, hand stamping, as well as individually hand drawn rainbows, plus a big art sticker insert & a 2nd xerox track list insert. limited edition of 222 copies.

released march 2009.
