Jim Goodall is selling these very limited and handmade new Debt of Nature cassettes on discogs.com. Newly recorded stuff (the first since 1986 under that name), it’s a very subtle companion piece to the new Medicine LP.

L: Medicine - “Turning”
There is no getting around this. “Turning” hits you in the face, sits you down in the chair in the corner, and then goes for it. The boldness is at first hard to follow, but quickly becomes one of the most interesting and cleverly layered tracks released lately. The percussion stays in can’t-stop-won’t-stop territory as the really muted vocals introduce this wispy, elusive idea that keeps the track moving along.
While I’m on listen #3, I still can’t figure this piece out… and I love that. Whew, how often do we run into a track that seems complicated and polished all at once? Watch out for Medicine's newest album, Home Everywhere, out 10.28 this year.
