2007 release finds Seattle psych-pop veterans The Green Pajamas mining childhood nostalgia...
Box Of Secrets is a conceptual album, a follow up if you will to 2002's Northern Gothic (on Camera Obscura), with three intertwining themes running through it: local legends, characters, and personal mythology. |
Inspired less by arcane literature and more by The Green Pajamas three songwriters’ own childhood experiences: 70's TV movies dealing with gothic themes of murder, secrets, the supernatural; along with small town life in the Pacific Northwest, the vague setting for many of the songs is the Washington coast.
The mostly fictional stories enclosed within this 'Box of Secrets' evoke a shared memory or that spooky sweet nostalgia, whether lived or not. Though the subject matter is dark, the music and songs themselves promise to be a bit more rocking and psychedelic, moreso than their last true studio album 21st Century Séance, which explored more mellow moods.
