(Re)Collection: Resplendent III: Casket City Wolves

Updated: Jun 13

At the tail end of 2003, I completed Casket City Wolves. It was and is my favorite EP from the trilogy. I am partial to how it takes elements of I and II and combines them. It moves the ideas forward.

If I had to pick a favorite song, it wold be Rise The Sun(On Cassette Mountain). It is whimsical and hopeful at the same time. Those are solid benchmarks.

I had the privilege of Ben and Tim from Red Red Meat and Joe from Califone playing on 3 tracks. I forgot about that until just now as I typed this in. Pretty amazing.
