Thrill Jockey thrill184 Daniel Higgs Atomic Yggdrasil Tarot
A combination book/CD release featuring poetry/anagrams and solo noise compositions by Daniel Higgs (Lungfish, The Pupils). Released by Thrill Jockey in 2007.
From Thrill Jockey: In recent years, Higgs has released a number of solo outings that can only be described as the ultimate in isolation, worlds away from the hypnotic, communal rock of his band. On Atomic Yggdrasil Tarot, Higgs weaves meditative, casually ruptured drones using acoustic and electric guitar, upright pianos, banjo and jew’s harp, recorded entirely at home on cassette recorder. He pairs the music with a series of paintings that call to mind religious iconography passed through the disfiguring surrealism of Miro.
