All Twelve Songs of the album "Truth Loved" (Written in the Interim and Operating as Chapter 7) by the Legendary and Fictitious Band The Breaks from the Novel "White Pigeons" by Chris Leo.
Indie bad-boy? Literary minstrel? The mythology has many permutations - decide for yourself. Vague Angels is Chris Leo's current moniker. Fans of Chris Leo's former projects (The Lapse, Van Pelt, Native Nod) will recognize his distinct blend of verbosity and musical virtuosity on his new efforts. With strange lyrical narratives and dense arrangements, Vague Angels sound like the culmination of a style and sound that he's been developing for years.
Though Chris dropped off the public radar for nearly five years after Southern's release of The Lapse's "Heaven Ain't Happenin'" LP in 2000, contrary to popular belief, he was not sitting idly by the jacuzzi with the gross of Crystal and ho's he'd accumulated from left over touring booty. In fact, he was busy working on novels and albums in tandem in the secrecy of Bolivia and Newark, New Jersey. The first novel, "White Pigeons", was originally released along with the album "Truth Loved" serving as Chapter 7 and performed by the book's fictitious band The Breaks, as played by Vague Angels. Seeing as all people see the same things differently and all things appear differently when seen at differing distances, the album "Truth Loved" is finally set free to be released on its own as its own. Rather than exist as a musical substory surrounded by a novel, perhaps some will feel it better suited as the premier story with the novel serving as rancid residue around it.
Yes, after two stripped down European and Statewide tours with little but himself and an acoustic guitar, Chris has decided to allow the songs of "Truth Loved" some breathing room from the text and stretch out as wide as they may choose to stretch.
