Now this is an interesting one. For the first few years of its existence LA label Hit+Run was best known for releasing kush-hazed hip-hop tapes from the likes of Jonwayne and Teebs. However, their releases from the Contact Field Orchestra changed perceptions of the label. Damon Aaron discovered these strange tapes at an estate sale in 2008. Some digging led him to discover that these were field recordings, captured around the beginning of the 20th Century, of a band of miners from the San Gabriel area of California. Aaron then spent some time polishing up the recordings as best he could and, if necessary, filling in parts where the recordings cut out. The result was 2013’s Vol. 1, an album of eerie folk that sounds like some proto-Tom Waits artist released via Death Is Not The End.
