Cars & Trains
'The Roots, The Leaves'
(Fake Four Inc.)
The Roots, The Leaves is the sophomore effort of Portland, Oregon based multi-instrumentalist Cars & Trains (Tom Filepp), a more personal and emotive foray than his 2007 debut full-length, Rusty String. Tom Deftly mixes out-of-the-box electronics and found sounds seamlessly with a myriad of instruments, woodwinds, banjos, acoustic guitars, strings and glockenspiel, walking a blurry line that makes one wonder where exactly the uncommonly organic drum programming ends and the instruments and lushly layered found sounds begin.
The Roots, The Leaves is cars & trains' most realized and expressive effort to date, full of energy and intimacy gleaned from Filepp's intense, energetic, and intricate live looping show that he has steadily developed and gained notoriety for. From the intricate plucking of The Root's cyclical opening and closing songs, and everything in between, cars & trains carefully journeys hand in hand with his influences, cajoling them into a world all his own.
