Released by La Société Expéditionnaire. LSE015 - 09/10/09

Dragon Turtle is Brian Lightbody and Tom Asselin (Canadensis)

with:
Kevin Allen, Jeff Green, Russell Higbee, Ken Jackson, David Kresge, Lyman Rhodes, Lou Rogai, David Ulrich, Andrew Xue, Patricia Zeigler, Eve Miller, John Baker, Paul Burke, Janos Somogyi, William Lemmon, Tim Showalter, and Yuichi Sasaki.

Late night sessions took place into the dawn during the height of dark transformation: post 9/11 America. The process was fueled by AM Radio Coast to Coast broadcasts of scientific mysticism and tales of lost civilizations. The muted TV radiated a constant feed of
terror warnings, jingoisms, and escalations into war.

This is Dragon Turtle's evolutionary vision of history, a succession of natural degeneration and violent societal urges, destroying man's progress as histories are erased. Historical myth, once created, is
either forgotten, championed, or destroyed. Almanac examines man's destructive tendencies and documents the vision of change in man and his surroundings.

“Island of Broken Glass” takes its name from Robert Smithson's sculptural work, recanting destruction and violence inherent in the relationships between nature and man. The lyrics from this song also inspired the cover of the album, a spiraling double helix /DNA strand made of burning books.
