Two Years on Welfare's Glenn N. lists his artist location as Filthy, Pennsylvania...but in a reality where Two Years on Welfare dictates the landscape, the "filthy" is offset and reinterpreted considerably by hypnotic, pulsating, eerie psychedelia. Bringing to mind a more meditative take on the Broken Flag catalog, TYoW haunt and vibrate like Skullflower or Ramleh on a more contemplative, less destructive path.
The newer tracks on TYoW's page reveal an affinity for horizontal landscaping, in the form of 10-min. chunks of levitating chill and layers of ominous, cinematic provocation. Since the first, two-track demo cassette, and "Sleep," TYoW's ghostly, enveloping contribution to the 2010 My Castle of Quiet premium compilation, this project's visit to the Castle has been eagerly anticipated.
The Castle cacthes Two Years on Welfare at the start of a summer mini-tour, with shows in Brooklyn, Easthampton, New Brunswick, home-base Philly, Baltimore and Richmond.
World-weary caretaker sighs, and opens the big Castle doors @ 12 mid.
