Celesteville is actually a one-man task, the man getting Jacob Anderson, originally given birth to in SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA and partially raised in Iowa, but mostly living around Portland, OR, apart from university stints in California and Pa. Having experienced some bands and tasks since senior high school times, Anderson had a number of experiences along with his make of low-key experimentalism. Affects which range from underground pop legends just like the Cannanes and arbitrary old gaming noise to an array of globe musics — one of is own prized possessions is certainly a kalimba with an integral jack port for pedals and amplifiers — are available in his mixed work. Celesteville began being a break from his prior music group Yak Brigade in 1998, called following the capital from the elephants in the Babar children’s reserve series. Differing guests have performed and sung on Celesteville recordings, but generally it’s simply Anderson and his innovative playing and lyrics — occasionally nuttily humorous, occasionally deeply psychological — which consider center stage. Preliminary releases by early 2001 consist of two CDs on Anderson’s very own label Tape Hill aswell as an archival assortment of previously material and different compilation appearances.
