GILA MAN

(click arrow at left to listen)

Each Todd Tobias solo album presents its own surreal world – and Gila Man is no exception. A wordless musical  novella that merges a psychedelic Western with shadowy science fiction, 

Gila Man simultaneously evokes the wide-eyed wonder of discovery and the creeping dread of what horrors may lurk around the next corner. Featuring the wordless vocals of English songwriter and fellow Hidden Shoal artist Chloë March, the album is at once beautiful and unsettling – and a wonderful distillation of the magical qualities of Tobias’s previous musical outings. Gila Man’s individual songs vividly evoke characters and scenes within the album’s imaginary narrative, casting dusty projections onto the mind’s eye.

MOONCHY & TOBIAS III

Vocal by Pat Moonchy/ Music by Todd Tobias

Moonchy & Tobias' third album is an immersive soundtrack to uncanny dreams, soaked in melancholy and longing. Moonchy’s vocals, mostly sung in Latin, thread through Tobias' nocturnal atmospheres like smoke. As Moonchy explains, “When I sing in Latin it feels like discovering the details of ancient lives lost in time.”

SAMSARA by The World Of Dust

Vocal by Stefan Breuer/ Music by Todd Tobias

A shadowy universe of forlorn beauty, this lo-fi bedroom pop experiment is shrouded in elemental imagery and laden with ennui. Intimate and wistful, Samsara mines a similarly rich emotive seam to Mount Eerie, Sparklehorse, Low and Pedro the Lion.
