amp;Hope Still by Silent Land Time Machine is an excellent effort from Texan one-man band. The liner notes indicate, SLTM is m. nd many other inadvertent contributions from the Pearl St Co-op. For an album recorded in a bedroom in the autumn of 2006 and winter of 2007-08, its production values and high level of musicianship and professionalism actually make it rather difficult to critique, except only to endorse it with high praise.

amp;hope still is all shades sepia via sound. Built on layers of acoustic instrumentation combined with various audio ghosts and samples, Silent Land Time Machine is a chamber folk orchestra of beautiful construction. Similarly wonderful, is the fact that this orchestra has been constructed with only two hands.

The mood of &hope still, is less apocalyptic and political then the above mentioned influences, leaving a lot more room for imagination of the listener.

Foxy Digitalis Review / 8/10 Lightning Boltshttp://www.digitalisindustries.com/foxyd/reviews.php?which=4050“&Hope Still” by Silent Land Time Machine is an excellent effort from Texan one-man band. The liner notes indicate, “SLTM is me…and many other inadvertent contributions from the Pearl St Co-op”. For an album recorded in a bedroom in the autumn of 2006 and winter of 2007-08, its production values and high level of musicianship and professionalism actually make it rather difficult to critique, except only to endorse it with high praise. First off, this record is very nicely presented and well-conceived in terms of the personalised packaging – a purplish-monochrome hued watercolour or damaged photography reel of a waterfall or an ice shelf, somehow reflecting a natural, beautiful vastness, like some of the music contained within. The insert postcard is a nice ‘souvenir’ touch, adding to the overall air of mystery surrounding this bedroom-recording Texan. The packaging and album form one impressive piece of artwork.SLTM is a little in the vein of Four Tet, The Books and Iron and Wine – coincidently another folkrock band who now reside in Austin, Texas. It is, however, pretty hard to locate this music in terms of direct influences. The guitar and violin are certainly mainstays throughout and gel cohesively together, alongside other elements such as accordion, viola and electric slide. These are also all measured in delivery and work extremely well together. While the man behind SLTM is apparently not technically trained, he skilfully brings the best out of his instruments through simple patterns, thoughtfully adding layer upon layer. This serves in bringing slightly-muted orchestral folkrock warmth to each track. Elements of gentle electronic experimentation, sampling, buried vocals and percussion also provide real moments of joy.Opening track, “Everything Goes to Shit”, features distant bass drum thumping as SLTM’s beautiful signature slide takes over, almost instantly breaking into one of the many enjoyable grooves on the album. “The Thing This Doesn’t Mean is Nothing” is the highlight of the album, moving seamlessly through different terrain, exploring all the while, with subtle experimentation such as the sound of children’s voices and the crumpling of paper. After building with violin and accordion, it pulls back into a really nice soft hammering-on-boards percussive groove, later featuring garbled voices from the Pearl St Co-op and rendering a semblance of community and place.There is so much to find scattered throughout this album’s looping and layers that I have probably failed to mention some of the real highlights. It’s fairly subtle music and it’s worth mentioning that you may have to be in a “patient” mood for it. If you’re feeling kind of irritated with life in general, this music may exacerbate that tension, especially given some of the extended track times (end track, “Copperpot Topography”, at 13 minutes long, feels a little as if the album has run its course but in all fairness, redeems itself seven minutes in as it launches into more muted pounding kick drum, beautiful violin, slide, looped radio tuner samples and background vocal harmonisation). If you’re feeling properly relaxed, you can let this one in – probably best not to focus too hard on the many nuances and simply let it infuse into the background.SLTM is (presumably) quite different from what others are doing right now, making it refreshing, exciting work. 8/10
At times mysterious, at times complex, but always relaxing, even during its climaxing moments, Silent Land Time Machine is an instrumental rock project that reminds me a lot of A Silver Mt Zion. Except that... Jon is just one man... But upon your first listen you wouldn't know it... Hailing out of Austin, Texas, Jon is a multi-instrumentalist, and is equally comfortable behind the guitar, piano, accordion, and a wide range of stringed instruments. His motivation to master the musical medium and inspirations are credited to Anni Rossi (recently signed to 4AD) and Sophie Trudeau (member of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, and a co-founder of Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra & Tra-La-La Band), as well as much other output from Constellation and FatCat labels. Jon mangles instrumentals, DSP filtering, and field recordings which create a feeling of a small folksy community gathering, improvising over familiar melodies. The mood of &hope still, is less apocalyptic and political then the above mentioned influences, leaving a lot more room for imagination of the listener. Although some of the sounds appear to be looped, the patterns are not obsessively repetitive and are very organic. Jon takes great care in overdubbing layers and layers of live instrumentation to create his unique blend of post-americana-psyminimal-desktop-folktronica. Yes. I like that for a genre. The debut album has been released this past October, 2008, as a collaborative effort between Time-Lag Records and Jon's very own Indian Queen Records. Recommended if you like experimental pieces from M83, Mogwai, Benoît Pioulard, and Múm.
