At long last, the return of Ten and Tracer. It was some six years ago that his last album, 'A Secret is a Poisonous Snake’ was released. Aside from a few compilation/remix appearances, the world of Ten and Tracer has been relatively silent.
With Caramel Bother, he returns to his 'psychedelic opium-ambient’ style that first began with Tsotsitaal (2009) and was further refined through Cold Finishes the Monk (2010), Friendless Now (2011), and Pest (2012).
While Caramel Bother clearly shares the same lineage as those albums, it is undeniably evolved, matured and perfected well beyond these earlier works. It is an album of deep consideration and playful bliss. It is ... magic?

Written and Recorded by Jonathan Canupp between November 2012 and April 2019 in Denver, Alma, Fairplay, Como and Castle Rock, Colorado.

Many thanks to Carl Ritger for the use of his modular gear + pedals (featured prominently in One for Black - for Grey / One for Those Chosen - Carried Away)
My everlasting gratitude to Keith Kenniff for the sounds from his piano(s)

David Last, Layden Bryant, Jason Corder, Joshua Smith, Tuhmas Kamholz, Roy England and Brian Grainger - for the hundreds of hours spent creating music, making jokes, making art - sharing knowledge and experience. These sessions have changed the way I make music - and for that I'm forever grateful.

Thanks are insufficient when it comes to my dear, sweet Rachel for her unending love and support. My companion through it all. This wouldn't exist without her.
