Alexander Tucker (1/2 of Imbogodom) to release Third Mouth on May 15, right after he takes you on a weird adventure

There’s a house on a hill somewhere that’s built from broken glass and has dried seahorses under the floorboards and bookcases filled with Lord of the Rings novels and imaginary science-fiction novels. The woman who lives there will tell you she speaks in tongues. You’re wondering where in tarnation this crazy place is, and I’ll tell you it’s nowhere. I’m just trying to blend the various subjects of Alexander Tucker’s sixth solo album, Third Mouth, which will see a May 15 release via Thrill Jockey.

Third Mouth follows Tucker’s Thrill Jockey debut Dorwytch, which came out last year, as well as Imbogodom’s And They Turned Not When They Went, which came out in January. Compared to Imbogodom’s surreal tape loop experiments, Tucker’s solo work is certainly a horse of a different color — an intersection of psych-rock and ambient pop as well as an exploration of progressive song structures.

Also, Tucker painted the album art himself — maybe it’s a clue to finding the broken glass house. Good luck looking for it.

01. A Dried Seahorse
02. The Glass Axe
03. Mullioned View
04. Window Sill
05. Andromeon
