John Vanderslice is back with The Cedars, a bit of a curveball from the artist. As stated here “Vanderslice decided to leap back into his solo career with full force, hunkering down for over 50 days with Telephone engineer/producers James Riotto and Rob Shelton in a process that yielded The Cedarsâ€”Vandersliceâ€™s most ambitious record to date. The albumâ€™s name is taken from an 11 square mile serpentine canyon that exists in the remote wilderness of West Sonoma County, 90 minutes north of San Francisco, where Vanderslice owns a small portion of communal land nearby. The Cedars is filled with one-of-a-kind geological phenomena: Mars-like red slopes, bizarre mineralized rock formations, and high-alkaline springs that have fostered over 8 different plant species found nowhere else in the world. Vanderslice developed an obsession with this area not only because of its mysterious beauty, but also because itâ€™s almost impossible for anyone to get there due to natural barriers and the surrounding private land ownership.”
