Although each track on "The Perfume of Creosote" stands on its own, this body of work is intricately crafted to take the listener on a daylong sojourn through the desert from emboldened sunrise ("Surya, The Divine Sun") to the dreamlike, UFO-infused night sky ("As Heaven Falls from the Sky"). With repeated listenings, the journey becomes more joyful and compelling.

These unique electronic soundscapes contain elements of ambience, world music, alternative rock, lounge music, music for film, and hints of psychedelia and jazz. From the lush and romantic "Inside Saguaros" to the bewitchingly ambient "Mirage"; from the wild, uptempo, "When The Devil Was A Little Boy" to the beautiful and haunting "Tarantulas," you'll hear underlying shades of exotica inspired by such artists as Martin Denny, Arthur Lyman, and Les Baxter. Instead of the tropical flavor favored by those artists, each piece is inspired by the desert–the lush Sonoran desert in particular–capturing the exotic essence of the creatures, fauna and climate.
