THE NEW ALBUM
BACK YARD TIRE FIRE
Beware the pyro-pups for the Fontaine fire is ablaze once more ! Descending back to Earth from Above the Blur, Fontaine's third album 'Back Yard Tire Fire' is straight lit !
Mixed & mastered by the unequivocally inimitable genius of Bubba Fontaine at the helm of Millenium Falcon-esque Squid King Studios, BYTF's hour long musical journey seamlessly meanders from one track to the next in a fashion reminiscent of every Gen X'er's #1 desert island album, Blood Sugar Sex Magic. Yes. We said it...And please, by all means, forewarn your moms and your mom's moms that all of a sudden in January 2019 there is a moment afoot that you and she and she's she should pay ambient attention to as homage to all that was once great & good with respect to music: the stuff that only 1992 could provide whilst the logs simmered in a burnt orange 179 degree smoke on a summer night along the edge of the woods while they were out of town visiting the relatives for which you couldn't care less.
ABOVE THE BLUR
Fontaine's psych-prog rock journey on their infectious sophomore effort begins in the cosmos chasing around unidentified flying objects and their alleged onslaught of protectors: angels.
After a lengthy descent via subject strata along the lines of the zodiac, airline flights, and into the ocean to battle the squid and leviathan of the dark, Fontaine takes the turn back skyward with nautical themes until disembarking on the sand and the ultimate ether beyond the reaches of the cosmos.
To say that this is heady material would be a mistake from upon the surface, but once the concept sets in then the light switch clicks and the mind's eye is thus illuminated by this band of brothers whose collective tongue is perpetually in cheek.
Give this one a spin and join us on our journey!
