Atlanta, Georgia's Scott Herren has many musical personalities. The only one I was familiar with prior to picking up this lovely gem was the similarly named Schematic compilation project Delarosa+Asora. An obvious departure from the fore-mentioned project, Savath+Savalas main focus is on ambience. I'm not talking about ambient music, but more of a post-rock lounge kind of ambient. Yes, this album is electronic, but that is not its primary decor. Many traditional musical elements come into play here, underlined carefully by the numerous hidden talents of Herren's fantastic programming. This is a beautiful release, moody and subtle, with low bass lines and drifting percussion. Songs like 'Transportation Theme', 'F Ride+Blues' and 'Paulo' flow smoothly and consistently, racked with warm tones, traditional snare drums, and the occasional electronic glitch. Strange loops and sullen filters knit the main pieces together, giving the album a seamless flow of magnificence. Dreamy piano tones and washes of filtered synth timbre remind one of Pole's recent efforts at times. Drunken bass guitar riffs and fluid-like snares mix seamlessly with their electronic counterparts. Herren's song writing is superb; fusing beautifully flowing elements of jazz and electronica into masterful compositions of musical poetry. Best described as a '70's era lounge album mixed by a producer from the future, 'Folk Songs for Trains, Trees and Honey' is a groundbreaking release that is sure to please Warp label fans and post-rock purveyors alike.
