Ames is the first release to come from Portland, Oregon based Tracker. Desert highway narratives, folk tales from the front yard, and loose guitar lo-fi for the super-8 movie, Ames is the soundtrack following the travels of one man alone as he drives. Recorded at Type Foundry Recording in Portland, John Askew pushes record on the 16-track reel to reel, documenting passing landscapes and empty motels: headphone core for the analog. Somewhere at the kitchen table with Grandaddy, Sparklehorse and Camper Van Beethoven, Tracker films the lone roadway, the solitude expanse. Tracker is: driving.
