Following closely on the critical acclaim of their debut (released Spring 2005), Raleigh’s Ticonderoga offer The Heilig-Levine LP,
named for the cavernous space where they recorded for free.
Their second album offers more refined post-rock adventurism, quasi-folk acoustics, and even a couple of rockers. Restless and
tweaked, much like a Gastr Del Sol composition yet infinitely more user-friendly, Ticonderoga’s esoteric songs have a warmth
about them – who wouldn’t love something that, according to Philadelphia Weekly, “weds twangy turbulence with breathy pop”
deep from the well of boundless creativity?
