"... a dynamic record front to back, one carefully orchestrated but then deconstructed and re-ordered in compelling ways. It’s another surprise from Kotche, a player and composer who refuses to repeat himself."
- PopMatters.com

This multihued album took form after Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche was inspired to write a string quartet, which eventually morphed into a kaleidoscopic amusement ride of strings, gamelan, electronics and Kotche’s vast arsenal of percussion instruments. Adventureland, which maps an intense and fertile period of growth in Kotche’s artistic vision, contains the suite Anomaly featuring the Kronos Quartet, intertwined with the chilling, at times even macabre five-part piece The Haunted for “two pianos vs. percussion."

"For the string quartet, I was banging my head against the wall for ideas and the solution didn’t really come to me until I sat down at the drums. I realized, ‘Hey, four voices, four limbs!’ So I made the cello my right foot, the viola my left foot and took it from there."
- Glenn Kotche

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
