A warmly compelling, elegant combination of psycho-geography and musical travelogue, imbibing the sounds and traditions of five US cities. Local genies of funk, jazz and classic r&b are folded into live guitar, pocket trumpet and slit drum, together with citizens’ spoken testimony about place and politics, and Meinecke’s own reflective, floating vocals. In a smart gatefold sleeve, with liner notes about each location by Anna Werkmeister and Thomas Meinecke.
