The Man With the Flowering Hands

Disc review

Dixie’s Death Pool brings into its fold a near-dozen musicians, but the heart and soul of the long-running Vancouver underground collective is mastermind Lee Hutzulak, a multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, engineer and loosely deemed songwriter. We say "loosely" as these "songs" were mostly improvised off the floor of Hutzulak’s home studio and painstakingly assembled over the course of a few years, stitched and sewn back as many parts, built around acoustic guitar, drums and bass, but dipped in chocolate flows of weird and wild accompanists (horns, strings, keys, xylophone, metal objects, fishing line – you get the idea), sound collages and psychedelic music experiments. Puts the experimental back into pop.
