I Am Waiting for You…

Rob Theakston I Am Waiting for You…
I Am Waiting For You To Stop Being Mad At Me is the first full length Rob Theakston has recorded for Moodgadget and his third full length in as many years. Extracted from a sleep deprived 42 hour marathon recording session during the winter of 2009, this record is a smoldering excursion into the shale colored landscapes of Theakston's Detroit upbringings and his current self-imposed isolation in the Kentucky countryside. Highly inspired by the early recordings of Jim O Rourke and the recent work of Taylor Deupree and Three Legged Race, IAWFYTSBMAM sees Theakston manipulate and improvise with bass guitars, acoustic guitars, cassette tapes, djembes and analog synths in continuous but sublty changing compositions that'll make the most hard hearted of Pitchforkers gently tweet "yeah, that's the stuff #Rob_Theakston" while flipping through the pages of the latest issue of The Believer on a calm Sunday night with a nice cup of earl grey. And if that wasn't enough, there are carefully curated remixes included from such electronic music luminares as Christopher Bissonnette, Off The Sky, Three Legged Race and Koda, all close friends who treat the original content with great reverence and find fresh reinterpretations that don't insult the listener's intelligence or pad out the album in a typical routine exercise.
