Cars & Trains (aka Tom Filepp) is a Portland, OR based multi-instrumentalist who has been creatively fusing folk music with electronic sounds for over a decade. Much like the busy Adam O'Day painting of midtown Manhattan that serves as its cover art, Fictions feels simultaneously zoomed in and distant. Hovering around the axes of macro vs. micro and personal vs. political, Filepp shares abstracted parables of existential yearning ("Every Morning"), cycles of creation and destruction ("Bridges"), and sympathetic laments for the dumpster fire of post-truth America. Fictions, recorded and mixed by Cars & Trains at his Portland home studio, was inspired by Fripp & Eno, the bass of King Crimson, the timbre of '67-80 Miles Davis, recent sociopolitical events, and the writings of Borges.
