2011 debut from the Sacramento producer/musician. Operating behind the scenes for years-as a frequent collaborator with Zach Hill, an engineer and co-producer to Dirty Projectors on their critically acclaimed Bitte Orca LP, and also as an axe-slinger in Marnie Stern's touring unit-Moncrief here establishes his own sound: homespun electronic Soul infused with folksy intimacy and searching Psychedelia. Watered Lawn offers a beautifully precarious balance of light and dark, pitting flurries of West African guitar against synth-derived buzz and bluster and wedding warm West Coast beat experimentalism to Moncrief's brokenhearted falsetto.
