This arresting collection of aural gems builds from the familiar, image-rich work of the Moho Memo while exploring new and unexpected directions of sound. In this debut effort of The Automatic Bean, fans of the Moho Memo will recognize many of the same hands at work fashioning a rich tapestry of sound. The songs transport you into a poetic world peopled with sublime sonorities, the haunting cries of strange beasts, and the churning, lurching rhythms of a drunken hurdy gurdy's unsung dreams. The fifteen songs arc from The Plain of Quiet Surprises into an orchestrated cacophony of exuberance and back again in a moving journey that tells us much about that which cannot be said.
