Bassist turned vagabond C.J. Boyd uses bass loops and voices in order to try and stop time. On perpetual tour since March 2008, movement and stasis are both at the center of his music. Weaving together improvisation with a sparse, minimalist aesthetic, Boyd creates waves of sound, worlds of provocative unlived memories through a singular approach to the upright bass, electric bass guitar, and bass ukulele that makes everything near and far.
Lisa/Liza is the recording project of Liza (pronounced Lisa) Victoria, a singer, songwriter & guitarist from Portland, Maine’s D.I.Y. folk scene. Momentary Glance is her second album for Orindal Records, following 2016’s home-recorded solo acoustic collection, Deserts of Youth.
Momentary Glance is Lisa/Liza’s first album of electric guitar recordings, half of which feature the recording debut of her live band (comprised of fellow Mainers Jonathan Downs, Devin Ivy & Pete Swegart). Momentary Glance was recorded & mixed by Efrim Manuel Menuck (of Godspeed! You Black Emperor & Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra) at his hotel2tango studio in Montreal, with the exception of the song “Tea Kettle,” which was recorded & mixed by Colby Nathan at New Fruit Collective in Portland, Maine.
