Totem Pole – Caves and Tunnels, Mountains and Stairs

Totem Pole makes really beautiful lo-fi tape recordings using a lot of found sounds. Their sound is lost in an opium dream somewhere, pulled over asleep in the median between Drone and Pop streets. The Troggs and Ravi Shankar adopted a kid, moved to West Palm Beach, Florida, and made him listen to Donovan through a guitar amp in a big echo-y room. When he grew up, this is the music he made. There is a really great write-up on the band here.
