Album Notes
Silk & Olive began in 2004 as the solo project of Portland, Oregon musician, Andy Fish. Dark & haunting, S & O exudes the rawness of PJ Harvey, the sleepy swagger of Mazzy Star and the political musings of Patti Smith or Johnette Napolitano.

Released as a limited pressing, transparent red 12" vinyl LP, this version includes completely different artwork (country versus city life) and a live bonus track as opposed to the CD. The sepia-toned album cover was photographed on a cloudy winter day off the coast of Astoria, Oregon. The flip side is a photo of Andy taken in the high desert near Pendleton, Oregon. The bonus track, "Clementina", was recorded on Valentine's Day, 2008 at a sold-out Mississippi Studios show in Portland.

Recorded by Scott Weddle of the band AMELIA and mixed by Dave Fulton, the recording is S&O's 2nd following 2005's "Small Dark Light". Although TITTL continues to venture in the minimalistic splendor of the previous record, a variety of guest musicians are incorporated to accentuate the film score-like quality. Highlights include Scott Weddle on lap steel in the nostalgic ballad "Wapsiana", Jolie Clausen on percussion in the trashy, Tom Waits-esque "Bad Baby Pie" and Michael Grossman on violin throughout, reinforcing the ephemeral quality of this sad yet electric whirlpool of songs.
