Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Some thoughts from Joe O'Connell on his project's new album: The album title is
Genericana. To me, that roughly means "the stuff from which stuff generates." It's a
short hand way of evoking all the elements that I'm mashing up in this music. The
idea is basically that it's this collision of genres, and collision of different versions of
"American music." It's also an album that doesn't fit very neatly into a category of
album _ studio? live? remix? Maybe all, or none, of the above. This is a new mutant
variety of Elephant Micah, better suited to survive the cultural climate of the
moment in so-called "Trump's America." It lives! I guess the lodestone in the process
of making this was the kind of global avant garde mood that's prevalent in a lot of
1980s albums I admire. Things like Joni Mitchell's Dog Eat Dog and Arthur Russell's
Calling Out of Context. These records where singers were making really eclectic
and outward looking productions _ writing *through* the process of recording, and
literally *playing* with technologies tha t were totally new to them. All the gear that
I gathered to make the album was basically discarded or devalued. I got a bunch of
stuff from Craigslist that interested me: a cheap FM synth, some Hindustani
electronics, and an old three-head tape deck to use as a "poor man's space echo."
The icing on the cake is a one-of-a-kind homemade digital synthesizer called "The
Mutant". I worked with my brother to design it. He built it and coded it. The
concept of the synth is parallel to the concept of the album itself. It's an electronic
take on "folk" sounds (bends, drones, modal playing) and folk creative approaches (a
cobbling together and reformatting of existing elements).
