Camryn Marquez The chemistry between these two musicians is really strong. Although I'm sure these two improvisations were not one-takes, the interplay between these two guitarists never sounds awkward and unconsidered. This really is a merging of their respective talents: one generates a woozy bed of melody, and the other pricks that bed's fabric with sharp notes. The cover art captures the intense focus and highly expressive virtuosity demonstrated on this release. Favorite track: Side A.

about

Tom Carter and Loren Connors are a pairing so obvious, it’s a mystery how it took this long to happen. Each has traversed the American underground on their own unique path. Carter co-founded acid-folk improvisers Charalambides in 1991 and Connors has been redefining his singular vision of the blues since the late 1970s.

On this debut non-titled LP, these guitar masters conjure a stunning, and at times labyrinthine, six-string tableau. Carter’s high-contrast spiral melodies sear through Connors’ expanding canvas of blacks and molten reds. It’s a startling and new language of psychedelic and avant blues that is a next step in Carter and Connor’s ongoing exploration of the guitar.
