Doug Kaplan and Aeron Small make music together as The Big Ship. Spread out between Chicago where Doug runs the Hausu Mountain label and Philadelphia where Aeron attends Medical School the two have maintained a creative relationship that has been blooming since their early childhood. The music borrows from ambient/drone, jam rock, American roots music and kraut-rock to envoke something timeless, beautiful and all together real. "Searchlight Casting" is the duo's realization of a mountain of laid back ideas distilled into one bright and lonesome release - perfect for those winter chills.
