In August of 2011, Jonathan Lee lost the majority of the files and gear for his Anduin project in a home burglary. Stolen Years contains the remnants left from the two previous years of exploration and frustration. Sounds creep in and out of headspace, warping into strange rhythms veiled in shadowy musical themes. These rough mixes, sketches, and reworked pieces use fragments of the artist’s life in new contexts. The music and artwork is a portal to a subconscious world, a framework from which one can create endless mythos. The album includes contributions from jazz musician Jimmy Ghaphery, mastering by sound artist Lawrence English, and extensive hand-drawn, hand-screened artwork by Team Eight. Available in limited editions May 2012 from SMTG LTD.
