On her last tour, Val Glenn aka Time and Temperature stopped by Daytrotter to play a few songs, and you can now hear the results of that session. Most of the tracks are from the full-length she’s currently finishing before exiting Columbus for chillier northern climes in March. While original plans were for a double-album follow up to Cream of the Low Tide, Glenn says she’s condensed it down to a single.
While the excellent Cream of the Low Tide is on Bandcamp, most of the releases by Val Glenn aka Time & Temperature have been under the radar and hard to find (The Intimate VI EP, Trust Apples, a split with Jordan O’Jordan, etc.) unless you happen to know her personally or have friends in common. But recently she’s been putting a lot of her old stuff up on SoundCloud. So good.
T&T will be at Skully’s on July 29 with Blueprint and Nick Tolford & Company. Now that’s a lineup.
MP3:Time and Temperature – I Know the Caves are Deep
Val Glenn, aka Time and Temperature, quietly released an EP/mini-album called Cream of the Low Tide last week, and it’s aptly titled — Glenn’s creamy guitar tones accompanying her gorgeous, lilting voice. David Fowler of Moon High recorded the songs, and he kept things nice and simple even as Glenn got a little help from her friends on strings, percussion, lap steel, glockenspiel, flute, etc. Highly recommended, especially on a gray day like today.
As far as I know, this is Time and Temperature’s first digital release after several cassette-only or limited-edition 7″ releases. Download it at her Bandcamp site. She left yesterday for a tour overseas. Dates in France, Belgium, Austria and Germany after the jump. Continue reading →
