ESTER DRANG JOINS JADE TREE ROSTER & RECORDS "INFINITE KEYS" (JT1082)
Oklahoma’s [B]ESTER DRANG[/B] has joined the Jade Tree roster. The band will be releasing their second album and Jade Tree debut, [I]Infinite Keys[/I] CD (JT1082) on April 1, 2003 (Available for pre-order February 4, 2002). Vinyl for [I]Infinite Keys[/I] will be available through [URL]http://www.burnttoastvinyl.com|Burnt Toast Vinyl|EXTERNAL[/URL].
[I]Infinite Keys[/I] is cinematically inspired and atmospheric, a spectral wall of sound that reaches out in several directions at once without losing its central focus, emanating a feeling of timelessness that melds well with its psychedelic elements reminiscent of SPIRTUALIZED, GRANDADDY and fellow Oklahoman’s THE FLAMING LIPS.
[I]Infinite Keys[/I] is being recorded at Echo Labs and mixed at Soma (WILCO, STEREOLAB) by Chris Colbert (NEUTRAL MILK HOTEL, ELF POWER).
[B]ESTER DRANG[/B] has toured with [b]PEDRO THE LION[/b], STARFLYER 59 and [b]DENALI[/b] and has shared the stage with THE WHITE STRIPES, WHEAT and THE STARLIGHT MINTS to name a few. [I]Infinite Keys[/I] is definitely recommended for fans of all of the aforementioned bands, as well as a wide variety of artists including MY BLOODY VALENTINE, THE BEATLES, RACHELS, MARVIN GAYE, BRIAN ENO, SLOWDIVE, PHILLIP GLASS AND FUGAZI.
