Me Me the Moth
This project was a collaboration between Carlill and musician/artist Marcelo Radulovich , who had previously worked with David J and Mike Keneally. Their self-produced debut album The Weirding Valley contains fourteen songs constructed at long distance via the internet. With tracks recorded by Neil in Salem, MA, and Marcelo in Cardiff, CA, the process involved the exchanging of sound files, which were subsequently united at Radulovich’s home studio where Marcelo mixed and produced the album. Taking inspiration from the best of the Fluxus movement, The Weirding Valley is a tapestry woven of DADA-esque sensibilities. Shades of Wire, Pere Ubu and Captain Beefheart are apparent. The album was released in September 2013. Four videos were made by Radulovich for the songs The Red Radio, Hounds Are Sleepy, In the Air Blind and the album’s title track The Weirding Valley.
From the album notes…
‘The Weirding Valley is two voices constantly nudging each other from dark abstraction into wicked humor. Made in America with roots in Chile and England, The Weirding Valley is pop/weird/indie./folk/rock/avant-garde, cross cultural and symmetrically placed to delight and confuse the discerning listener’.
