Twenty Centuries of Stony Sleep (TCOSS)
TCOSS was birthed from the belly of Slaughter House Studios with a 7 track demo, ‘Burrow in the Brain Owl’, followed by ‘The Children of Lions and Garudas’ (2008).
They fully tracked their next album before the heartbreaking death of Lisa Hunte. ‘Circuit Crooks’ (2012), features Lisa on drums/piano/organ/voice. Dedicated in her memory, “You will always be our Bad News Betty”.
Joel added new force as the pulse of ‘She Dreamed a Drought’ (2014).
TCOSS invited Jamie (of The Jamies) to lay guest vocals on a few tracks. The guys fell in love (and let’s be honest, missed the estrogen), and… Jamie joined the band! Her sultry female vocals added to TCOSS’ medieval junk harmonies.
‘Softened Head’ (2018) was recorded at Arch Audio with Lorrie Matheson, and released to a sold out crowd at the historic King Eddy – National Music Centre in Calgary, AB.
‘Winter’ (2022), the band’s fifth release and second LP, was written and recorded with Charlie Loudowl (Loudowl Studios) from 2019-2021. It’s their most dynamic effort to date, with five songwriters, four part harmonies, and several guests. Winter boasts sonic experimental sounds that travel between David Lynch-esque trippiness, Black Mountain dirt sludge, to Big Thief’s gut wrenching emotion.
