||It All Has to Do with It CD (2000) |
Town & Country CD discography The third release from Chicago's Town & Country continues the band's tradition of acoustic experiments with subtle textures and quiet sounds. At times having a similar feel to the more acoustic guitar-tinged work of Joan of Arc, It All Has to Do With It never jumps out at the listener. Instead, the music creeps around, and hard-to-find rhythms provided by two standup basses continuously swell and relax with the interplay of piano, guitar, bells, and even accordion. Town & Country has no real rhythm section, a factor that contributes a strangely freeform aspect to all of the compositions. Nonetheless, the four tracks on this record somehow manage to fill up 40 minutes of disc space, a concept that is difficult to understand or to ...
||C'mon CD (2002) |
Town & Country albums In the cool and crowded world that scribes insist upon referring to as "post-rock," the tropes are so well established that, as in electronica, it's often difficult for an artist to make a truly individual impact. Not so with the drummerless, all-acoustic quartet Town and Country. In quiet, chamber-like settings, the band's instrumental compositions (and they ARE compositions, not just doodles over a two-chord progression) carefully intertwine the worlds ...
||Up Above CD (2006) |
Town & Country music CDs Chicago instrumental band Town & Country play a variety of electronic and acoustic instruments in a free-form but always tuneful collection of soundscapes that includes the exploratory, guitar-based "Almost at White Glass & Sun," the layered "Fields and Parks of Easy Access," and the percussive, African textured "Cloud Seeding." Random and frequently beautiful, these improvisations meander with purpose through a variety of tonal vistas.

||5 CD (2003) |
Town & Country discography On 5, Town & Country continues with its own beautiful style of acoustic minimalism. Bass clarinet, harmonium, viola, string bass, and cornet are the principle voices, but the way the sounds combine and evolve is the key here. In general, the pieces unfold very slowly, à la Morton Feldman, with an emphasis on the timbre of the instruments and their acoustic interplay. The players and the engineer paid extremely ...

Town & Country albums "A hidden musical gem waiting to be discovered. A wonderful surprise." ~Powerpopaholic
\"Sharp, tuneful, straightforward, unpretentious pop-rock. A transatlantic stew in which Beatle-y hooks and the classic 70's pub-rock sound of Squeeze, Graham Parker, and early Nick Lowe blend comfortably with the distinctly American strum & jangle of Wilco and the Jayhawks. Try it, you'll like it." ~DJ SJA
