“Gila Man”, the latest release by American instrumental soundscaper Todd Tobias (Guided by Voices producer, Circus Devils), includes the just released single “Pollen Path” (featuring Chloë March). Gila Man will see release via Hidden Shoal and Tiny Room Records on the 18th of October.
“Gila Man” is a discrete, surreal world – a wordless musical novella that merges a psychedelic Western with shadowy science fiction. It simultaneously evokes the wide-eyed wonder of discovery and the creeping dread of what horrors may lurk around the next corner. Featuring the stunning voice of English songwriter Chloë March, the album is at once beautiful and unsettling. “Gila Man”’s individual songs vividly evoke characters and scenes within the album’s imaginary narrative, casting dusty projections onto the mind’s eye. Wherever this music ventures, the listener is compelled to follow.
