Feeling a bit camera shy


cars & trains is Tom Filepp, raised amidst the spastic anti-planning of metro-area New York strip malls. His songs result from a severe love/hate relationship with computers. His methods jump between the analog and digital, polish and grit. As technology crashes and freezes, Tom inevitably picks up the mandolin or glockenspiel from a horde of random instruments. Simple *plinks* and *plonks* of things made of wood and toy plastic counter balance the laptop’s *clicks* and *pops*. Sounds are collected constantly, compiled, cut up into concise morsels, then put back together out of order creating small places which exist no where else.
