"BrokenTreasure STOMP", out Friday, June 1st, is the first single from a new full-length Uncivilized album entitled "Garden". The album is made of 5 long tracks, the first of which you may have heard back in March: "Reign STOMP". It was all recorded live at a Pioneer Works Community Happy Hour event here in Brooklyn, NY, but — thanks to their staff, some great multi-tracking gear, and the mixing work of Stephe Cooper (Cloud Becomes Your Hand) — the album has been edited and cropped to sound like it was made in a studio… I think! At the very least, it offers a pretty crazy ride. Local trumpeter and friend Jaime Branch guests on tracks 3, 4, & 5, but you’ll have to wait for those!
The cover art — by Vermont Madeleine Boga — is an abstract botanical watercolor on paper.
The new Uncivilized album "Garden" will be released this summer one track at a time, one month at a time, alongside paintings Maddy has been making while she listens to the music:
"I first listened to the album without any particular imagery in mind, letting it steep in my subconscious for a few days. When I revisited it a second time with a paintbrush in hand, the music's meandering elegance guided me. Created on a wave of spontaneity, the images created also draw from my years of knowing Tom and his distinctive cadence in both life and art." — Madeleine Boga (www.madeleineboga.com)
