Legendary avant-garde unit headed by Toby Driver, maudlin of the Well's final album seemed likely never to happen after several personnel changes pushed the band into what became Kayo Dot in 2001, leaving all remaining maudlin material temporarily forgotten. In 2008, Toby expressed a desire to revisit the material but it could not be done without the music community's help to finance the project. Thus one of the first crowd-funded albums in history materialized and gave life to the last part of maudlin of the Well's quality history. Long out of print, one of the label's first projects now bought back for a proper second pressing. CD presented with original art in jewel case, professionally glass-mastered. The original recording of the album was one of the first crowd-funded releases in history.
Fortunately, Part the Second continues the legacy of maudlin of the Well without too many of the elements which has made Kayo Dot unpopular with fans. The band mixes beautiful guitar tones, keyboards, strings, and other instruments, and has the ability to turn from dreamy landscapes to noisy, screaming nightmares to jazzy breaks without sounding forced. This is not a metal album however- while previous efforts were arguably metal, sounding like an even more spaced out version of Tiamat's Wildhoney and occasionally My Dying Bride, Part the Second rids itself entirely of the genre. There is a lot more space and mood in the music, such as Rose Quartz Turning to Glass which recalls Kayo Dot with Mia Matsumiya's violin winding us along oriental landscapes until the band kicks in with a Pink Floyd-esque trip into outer space.
Toby Driver is a t, composer, songwriter, producer, label owner, and artist, best known for his work as the leader of the experimental bands Kayo Dot and maudlin of the Well. Driver creates the majority of the album artwork associated with these bands, performs the lead vocals and several instruments, produces the albums, and has written and arranged the music for both bands.
