ODG010 : The Zoo Wheel / Ear Falls

This is the new Ep/mini album from Liz Payne and her solo project called The Zoo Wheel.
Charles Rumback (see also OCD005OCD009ODG009) is drumming on it. They first met playing music together as the rhythm section in Via Tania. Tania Bowers ( ) is adding extra vocals while Josh Berman is playing cornet on it ( ).
All songs were written, performed and recorded at home and outside by Liz Payne in 2010.
The drums were recorded by Brian Bullard  who also did the mix and the mastering at Spank Music, in Chicago.

What Liz says about the project:
"Ear Falls is a collection of songs long in the making, and long in the aging. It was completed in 2010 after a period in which it suffered a few lengthy interruptions. As a result of this, many songs for the collection were created and subsequently scrapped, and for the songs that survived, many versions were created. For this collection I was trying to make songs which held a place for me; a figurative place in memory, and a literal marker of place by the use of my field recordings. Over the years many places and events came and disappeared; these songs stand for the places that stayed with me."  
                                                           Charles and Liz

Liz Payne is a bass and guitar player and is most renowned for her tallented playing with those bands:
