about

During the dark days of December 2011 Amsterdam based quintet Spilt Milk found comfort in the first 8 published poems by American Modernist poet Wallace Stevens (1879-1955). Gathered under the title 'Carnet de Voyage' ('travel notebook'), these songs are full of stars, sunsets, landscapes and rivers. Although Stevens' poetry may not be the easiest or most permeable, listening to Spilt Milk's drone folk adaptations makes entering his buddhist-like, abstract view of the world a rewarding experience. Pressed on milky-white 10" vinyl with artwork by Viktor Hachmang, this is a Subbacultcha! release to cherish.
