VA. Eight Trails, One Path



VA. Eight Trails, One Path (three lobed recordings, 2012)

"Eight Trails, One Path is a celebration of the various styles, approaches, and concepts used by eight contemporary guitar masters. The last decade has seen guitar practitioners continue to push the boundaries of the instrument across the entire underground scene. This compilation presents a series of newly commissioned and previously unreleased tracks from some of the scene’s essential and unique guitar voices: Alvarius B. (Alan Bishop of the Sun City Girls), Sir Richard Bishop, David Daniell (solo, San Agustin, Rhys Chatham ensembles), Danny Paul Grody (solo, Tarentel, The Drift), Steve Gunn (solo, Gunn-Truscinski Duo, GHQ), Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth), Six Organs of Admittance and William Tyler (solo, Lambchop, Silver Jews). Eight Trails, One Path presents an exciting glimpse at the infinite possibilities presented by this ubiquitous instrument..." Three Lobed Recordings

Cloudland Canyon & Lichens. Exterminating Angel



Cloudland Canyon & Lichens. Exterminating Angel (holy mountain, 2007)

"Exterminating Angel's single 30-minute track uses voice, guitar, samplers, and ARP synthesizer. You've heard of the unmade science fiction epic whose would-be director proposed using different big-name progressive bands to perform a soundtrack for specific planets used in the script; here then are the sounds accompanying a spacecraft that's a combination Death Star and Taco Bell from the 1970s filled with cement Mayan temples and pyramids populated by large, snappily dressed reptilian beings. Every so often a bell goes off to break the spell and presents convincing evidence of this record's special journey." Holy Mountain
