Album Review
Telepathic Juan
Reviewed 2016-08-10 
Crickets is the debut 7” single by Minneapolis’ Smallertide. The experimental duo uses guitars, pedals, cheap microphones, as well as field and found recordings to create their lo-fi semi-acoustic works. The compositions are brief, delicate, instrumental, and guitar-driven, with field recordings or recorded fragments from old and new TV and radio shows toward the end of each track. Similar to the S N I C K E R S 7” single, there’s no break between the track so each side could be played continuously.

RIYL: S N I C K E R S, Andrew Weathers, Dirty Three, S Benjamin Sharp and Papa M.

Recommended Tracks: 1, 3, 4 and 5

33 1/3 RPM

SIDE A
1. (2:05) **Leaves Left Alone – Instrumental guitar-driven slowcore. Gentle and contemplative. Vintage found recording of foreign station ID – “Saludos Mexico”.
2. (2:13) Greatest Day (Crawling Across The Floor In Brightly Colored Clothes) – Another slowcore exercise here. Sample of JFK speech.
3. (2:15) *Everyone’s Gone To The Moon – Space out music.

SIDE B
4. (2:17) *For New York – Sounds like you are in New York looking out the window. Sample of commercial about NY. New? Old?
5. (2:29) **I Can’t Ever Love You – The track that most resembles a song in the entire single. More strange apartment sounds in the background while guitar gently weeps by the microphone. Sample of Jazz song at end the track.
6. (2:19) Knife In The Drawer – Some slowcore guitar sounds complemented with quiet running water sounds.
