Julian Koster's first full length record under the Music Tapes moniker is equal parts flights of fancy and brooding sorrow. A highly cryptic and personal album about a boy named Nomad who has dreams of being a sailor and his defiance against conformity in all shapes and forms. And it's all told from the most askew viewpoints. From the bottom of the sea, from a speeding bullet, from extraterrestrial televisions. A madly wonderful cacaphonious symphony. Music can be generated from vacuum cleaners and steamboats. Wax cylinders, wire recorders and hard drives used for recording materials. Comic book insert accompanying tells a story.
"It started, I think, the day my mother told me the Superman I had watched day in, day out in black and white reruns was no longer among the living...that being the very thing I had always wished to be (Superman) had destroyed him." -Julian Koster
