The National Park Service – I Was Flying (Lily Tapes and Records)

Musical Content: Cleveland’s Bill Delaney has released a number of digital collections since 2011, but this is his first physical release. It’s an auspicious debut. The eight tracks on this album are a delight. The instrumentals are heavy with guitars, possessed by strange background sounds and repetitive to the point of blissful trance. Some, like “Community Sunburn,” are less traditional, focusing on strangely looping tones and layered field recordings. There is a lot to dig into here, and repeated listens reveal details and depth.

Packaging and Sound Quality: A pro-dubbed tape with full color inserts that sounds great. A quality release, all around.
