Bridgetown #60

Mandarin Dynasty
Perpendicular Crosstalk

Between extended tours of the USA and numerous relocations, pop song maestro Mike Sherk's long-awaited bedroom masterpiece is finally ready after over four years of recording spread across California, Texas, Michigan, Rhode Island and Ohio. "Perpendicular Crosstalk" displays an extremely wide range of genres and styles that the seasoned road warrior naturally captures the essence of, makes his own, and redefines within the context of each other. While unafraid to toy with tongue-in-cheek pop culture references, Sherk's commanding quality lies in the sincerity of his storytelling. Amplified by his mastery in the nuances of each instrument and marvelous production values, Sherk pulls these eleven songs from a time capsule isolated from passing fads, trends and buzz-genres.
Guest musicians include Kevin Ferguson (Friendship Hurricane), Taryn Popplewell, Eleanor Weigert and John McCauley (Deer Tick).
