about

Bayou Rhythms has little to do with a musical genre or motif, but its pun-tastic title does hint at and reflect upon listeners' expectations when reviewing the song titles in this first of two LOD instrumental collections (see also ZB039). Working diligently in his home studio with a variety of instruments, and inspired by such sources as Bill Nelson, Robyn Hitchcock, and the Durutti Column, these twenty numbers develop from the bizarre imagery of the titles—some of which were jotted down snippets from newspaper headlines, or the products of freewriting and brainstorming—while others were titled once the track was completed. In terms of the latter, “Emolument” uses a cassette recording of a senatorial finance committee meeting Dean discovered at one of his favorite thrift stores for its title as well as found background sounds, while “Small Faces” is so named because its feel reminded Dean of that seminal British band.
