The Island Moved In The Storm

by Matt Bauer



"Lonely banjos ride along sharp ridges, horns swirl in cold creeks, and there is subtle sense of loss in Bauer’s music that leaves the impression of a man whose demons will not be stilled.” -Skyscraper

“An album of fragile beauty” -Under the Radar

“One of this year’s finest records” -Muzzle of Bees

"A strange, beautiful, spiritually satisfying....a beautiful album, subtle and precise in its description of things that are lost, forgotten and forever altering.” – Dusted

“A gorgeous musical travelogue, both spare and fully orchestrated, based on a murder victim known for years only as ‘Tent Girl.’ Matt Bauer whispers the details in a beautiful feathery rasp, inviting you join him as and eyewitness to the secrets of this sad story.” —Irene Trudel, WFMU


released September 2, 2008
