Behind the fuzz and distortion you'll discover a very clear, incisive message: Your freedom isn't a gift, it's a necessity. Follow your own path and the destination will find you. For Turnbull Green that definitive path began somewhere deep in the woods of Connecticut. It meandered its way along the rocky Long Island Shore coastline, before looping, lapping, & backtracking throughout the idyllic days of late 90's NYC. It eventually resurfaced from the Bay Area fog before a Hawaiian exile preceded a return to Brooklyn which led to his current Los Angeles encampment. The archived experiences & influences gathered along the way were later subconsciously curated into the album you hear today. The result is a distinct sound that defies the pigeonholed limitations of conventional gentrification. Throbbing baselines and deliberately degraded synths blend seamlessly with melodic hymns and frenzied outbursts. Filled with equal parts bliss to despair, peace to paranoia, it's as mechanical as it is organic and its a headfirst dive into the cavernous mind of Turnbull Green. With an approach all his own, this one-man-band has created an album that knows no rules yet bears no ego as a result. It's as if that recluse in the woods you wish would surface more often finally reemerged and had been hard at work all the while.
The album marks an inventive collaboration with Los Angeles based artist Michael Bernard McKeon, who will be handling all Art Direction & Videos. Mixed/nurtured by Ryan Moutinho and mastered by Capsule Labs, the LP will be released in limited run on 2x12" 180g vinyl and digitally as well. Remixes will be available as free downloads approaching the record's release.
Best classified as Experimental Punk, The Wolf In You will undoubtedly appeal to fans of Animal Collective, Death Grips, and Saul Williams. Future projects with the likes of Cassettes Won't Listen, Bisco Smith, The Savager, and Braxton Nations are already in the works as well as a slew of new personal material and instrumentals. The Wolf In You marks the start of what promises to be a long, distinguished run of provoking releases from Turnbull Green and his talented cohorts.
