Initially released in 1996, June of 44's second album is a long nautical mile from their debut album, 1995's Engine Takes To The Water. Recorded at Chicago Recording Studio and Idful Recording and produced by Bob Weston (Shellac, Mission of Burma), Tropics and Meridians is a collection of rhythmic phrases meant to be perfumed of whatever the listener would like them to be.
The music veers from the subtly lilting and melodic to the fierce and abrasive, often with a few bars. Frolicking on the high seas but then slowing down to float on a glass-like waterbed, the band brings us their unique brand of the quiet storm, set to the music, of course.
