Some thoughts from Joe O'Connell on his project's new album: The album title isGenericana. To me, that roughly means "the stuff from which stuff generates." It's ashort hand way of evoking all the elements that I'm mashing up in this music. Theidea 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 ofalbum _ studio? live? remix? Maybe all, or none, of the above. This is a new mutantvariety of Elephant Micah, better suited to survive the cultural climate of themoment in so-called "Trump's America." It lives! I guess the lodestone in the processof making this was the kind of global avant garde mood that's prevalent in a lot of1980s albums I admire. Things like Joni Mitchell's Dog Eat Dog and Arthur Russell'sCalling Out of Context. These records where singers were making really eclecticand outward looking productions _ writing *through* the process of recording, andliterally *playing* with technologies tha t were totally new to them. All the gear thatI gathered to make the album was basically discarded or devalued. I got a bunch ofstuff from Craigslist that interested me: a cheap FM synth, some Hindustanielectronics, 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 "TheMutant". I worked with my brother to design it. He built it and coded it. Theconcept of the synth is parallel to the concept of the album itself. It's an electronictake on "folk" sounds (bends, drones, modal playing) and folk creative approaches (acobbling together and reformatting of existing elements).
