Our split tape with Theo Angell and Moonwood made it onto the best of 2011 lists of two blogs.
Hippie Cult says of the release in their Favorite Tapes of 2011 post:
“Theo Angell’s side contains an entire cannon of American folk and story telling warped through his wizard beard. Moonwood mixes fuzzy reverb from a desert with mystic percussion and spiritual chimes. If you ever consider going on a vision quest, trying to start a New Church of Man, I suggest you take this with you.“
And Dying For Bad Music listed the Moonwood side specifically at #9 in their top 23 records of 2011.

Side 5: Theo Angell – Live @ Secret Project Robot 4-17-11
Mightily impressed by his Auraplinth and Dearly Beloved albums, we’re pretty excited to present this 40 minute live set by Theo Angell (JOMF, Hall of Fame) accompanied by one Hamish Kilgour (The Clean) recorded at Secret Project Robot in March. Arcane Eastern ragas and spooky Appalachian rags; ethereal whispers and raging acoustic freak-outs; jaunty alpine whistles and deep desert ceremonies. This here is bare bones psyche-folk wedding the weird and the beautiful to make babies with odd numbers of limbs and psychic eyes.
Side 6: Moonwood – The Path
Recorded by Moonwood during the same sessions as the mostly instrumental River Ghosts material, these nine vocal songs are vaguely woven together by Taoist mysticism and modern day beards. Southwestern reverb, droning psychedelic fuzz, Eastern percussion and plucked acoustic instruments mix with ritual chants and soft-spoken tales about death and small woodland animals.
