Double Bill: Timothy Monger & Gifts or Creatures

Acoustic Routes presents a double bill featuring two of Michigan's most creative musicians. 

Tim Monger, co-founder of Great Lakes Myth Society, is celebrating the one year anniverary of Amber Lantern, his most ambitious record to date. It's an inward musing, outward bound cascade of gently expansive, warmly detailed songcraft. Melding subtle synth textures with elements of psych, folk, and jangling power pop, Monger explores themes of hope, struggle, and personal revelation in poignant observations that celebrate the weird odyssey of the self. 

Gifts or Creatures is the musical pursuit of husband-wife Brandon and Bethany Foote. The couple fuses a blend of Midwestern folklore, old-world history and cinematic soundscapes to create a trove of antique Americana.

Their latest release, Fair Mitten (New Songs of the Historic Great Lakes Basin), is a tribute to their Great Lakes home. Recorded in Kalamazoo alongside Seth Bernard, Dan Rickabus (The Crane Wives) and Max Lockwood (Big Dudee Roo, May Erlewine), the album offers up a collection of songs that celebrates the rich history and timeless significance of the Great Lakes Basin.
