about

"10th of Seas" marks a departure for Barbe in that he performed and recorded the entire thing by himself, playing all the instruments completely solo. Everything. He says, "I wanted this record to be as close to the original source of inspiration as possible. I tried recording some of them with other people involved a few times, and it was better in some ways, but always seemed to lose something in translation. The communication became less personal. The emotional gravy is the glue."


Highlights include "Portugese Door," slippery and melodically complex, and the opening burst of "Dim Bulbs," the lyrics of which contain the album's title. "10th of Seas" is a reference to exploring the outer reaches of one's mind. Barbe says, "The phrase 'sailing the seven seas' did not mean just crossing the known bodies of water, but to go around the world and back. To sail across the 10th of Seas would indicate traversing through the unknown, to have seen it all, and then some."


Barbe will tour America this summer in support of the album backed by fellow Athenians New Madrid, with whom he has produced several albums.
