New vinyl version of the 2001 Plug Research CD. "A swirling, indistinct realm of sonic abstraction with influences ranging from the Beach Boys to My Bloody Valentine and Satie. 3rd album by an artist who combines live instruments, found sounds, and non-sequenced electronics. Somewhere between asleep and awake there is a suspended dream state where sounds float and pulsate, where you can no longer trust your senses. Chessie is the soundtrack to this special place. Over the course of three albums, Chessie's Stephen Gardner has plumbed a swirling, indistinct realm of sonic abstraction. Inspired by the sounds of railways, his work has blended electo-acoustic production techniques, live playing and non-sequenced electronics in an effort to capture the spirit and emotion of rail travel. The propulsive, inexorable clank of steel on track forms the rhythmic backbone of the Chessie compositions, and makes a particularly American counterpart to the motorik rhythms of much post-Kraftwerk music."
