[tube197] Minimal States – Liberty Hoax

Test Tube Netlabel:

Release notes:

«The second album in the trilogy is ‘Liberty Hoax’. Firmly based in the urban, developed and political world, far from the timelessness of the forest and natural world of the first album, it examines the vast, densely populated spaces of the inner-city and the physical and cultural wastelands that surround it.

Moreover, the album is concerned with the place of the individual amongst the masses, and with the concept of identity itself in a world where companies and the State have ever-increasing powers to access and regulate personal data. The album questions whether personal freedom is still a priority for governments and legislators, or if it is now merely a glass wall, a façade, or a mirage that will vanish when approached.» – Thom Carter

«Like the text above says, this is the second album in a trilogy from London based musician Thom Carter. The first one was ‘Like A Photograph’, and can be listened to and downloaded here.
There’s isn’t really anything more relevant I can add about ‘Liberty Hoax’ than the lines Thom wrote above, except that this album would make an amazing soundtrack to the mindblowing videogame released last year ‘Fallout 3’ which is set in a post-apocalyptical Washington DC wasteland, if the apocalypse happened in the early 40’s or 50’s. Or to any followup they might do in the future. Just go play the game and see for yourself. » – Pedro Leitão
