Kath Bloom & Loren Connors
Restless Faithful Desperate

Alternative folk duo Kath Bloom and Loren (MazzaCane) Conners had quite a prolific stint in the 80s. Now the kind folk at Chapter Music are reissuing their classic album Restless Faithful Desperate, filled with gentle acoustic folk. The duo's heartfelt songs have influenced a fair share of artists, includi...view item »

Loren Connors
The Departing Of A Dream Vol. V

Releases of the music of Loren Connors are always welcome, and they are especially so when they continue a remarkable suite of records intended as a tribute of sorts to Miles Davis. The Departing Of A Dream Vol. V is a typical example of Connors’ near-spiritual craft with the elec...view item »

Loren Connors
Pretty As Ever

Recital Records (Radiant Husk, Ian William Craig) present the fourth of their Loren Connors reissues. Pretty As Ever features the guitarist’s 2005 suites Pretty As Ever and Trinity as well as his 2000 interpretation of Hans Christian Ande...view item »

Robert Crotty & Loren Connors
Robert Crotty With Me: Loren's Collection (1979-1987)

Around the same time Connors laid down his first primal solo guitar albums at his home in Daggett Street, New Haven, he recorded these duos with visiting local bluesman, Robert Crotty. Connors revered the elder guitarist, and with his trademark vocal moan audible beneath Crotty’s more sonorous singing, there’s a sens...view item »

Loren Connors
Blues The 'Dark Paintings' of Mark Rothko

Loren Connors is one of those avant-garde composers’ whose records sell out quickly, and definitively. When their albums make a return, they are no longer avant-garde, but canon. So it should be with Blues the ‘Dark Paintings’ of Mark Rothko, inspired by Rothko, and a timepiece in its own right. 800 co...view item »

Loren Connors
Hell! Hell! Hell! Hell! Hell!

The Loren Connors re-issue frenzy continues with this vinyl pressing of his 1997 album. As the title perhaps suggests, this is a heavier album with nods towards the guitar scree and feedback of Bardo Pond and Sonic Youth. All tracks are untitled and the sole instrument is Connors ever mutating g...view item »

Loren Connors
Angels That Fall

Yet more guitar murmurations reissued by the blues enigma Loren Connors. At this point he's risen to prominence in experimental scenes through a series of lovely re-evaluations, and Angels That Fall is another. Recorded as recently as 2016, it offers the same interactions of silence and resonanc...view item »

Loren Connors
Moonyean

I once watched in amazement as Loren Connors and Jim O'Rourke guitar-wanked themselves to death in front of horrified onlookers at a gig in London at 1996. I was surprised as I'd enjoyed both of their music off and on for some time. The first track I listened to here reminds me of that tragic day. Connors distorting his guitars and doing his bes...view item »

Loren Connors
Evangeline

Previously released in limited CD quantities in 1998, Evangeline is a superb example of guitar wizard Loren Connors working in a romantic mode, in a suite of pieces that follow a story adapted from an 1847 epic poem. The rich, gorgeous audio has been remastered for this reissue, which also comes with new artwork and a s...view item »

Tom Carter & Loren Connors
Untitled

The twin crown princes of American guitar join forces for what appears to be the first time ever! Charalambides man Tom Carter is a little more psychadelic, and Norman favourite Loren Connors is a little more bluesy, but both are masters of gorgeous in-depth improvisation, and they twirl togethe...view item »

Loren Connors
The Departing of a Dream, Vol. VI

The vastly talented Loren Connors recently started up his Departing of a Dream series on Family Vineyard: here is Volume VI. This is Connors in an especially ethereal mood, with his guitar seemingly morphing into something not of this world. 10” vinyl on Family Vineyard, firmly limited to...view item »

Loren Connors & Clint Heidorn
Light

A pair of six-string guitarists: the young Clint Heidorn and the veteran Loren Connors. Light was recorded in a Brooklyn Cathedral, and the listener can almost see the carefully-deployed chords sinking through the spacio...view item »

Loren Connors
Lullaby

Another precious Loren Connors recording rescued from limited-run obscurity. Lullaby, first released in 2001, was a follow-up to his glorious Airs record, and shimmers through similarly gorgeous and subtle pieces of guitar atmospherics. Originally only an edition of 100 CDrs, Lullaby now gets a proper ...view item »

Loren Connors
The Red Painting

Loren Connors is deservedly famed for his meditative guitar playing, but this release is the first time we’ve been able to hear what he can do with a piano. The Red Painting is a single-sided 7”, so it only provides a brief glimpse of what we will hopefully see more of in the future: but what a glimpse. 338 ...view item »

Loren Connors
Live In New York

The US avant guitarist Loren Connors further consolidates his legendary status with a self-explanatory live outing. As usual, the blues hovers spectrally over proceedings while the guitarist's inventive and diverse technique recalls fellow masters including Robert Johnson, Ry Cooder an...view item »

Loren Connors
Airs

A classic work of rich-toned guitar beauty from master of this sort of thing Loren Connors. Airs was first infused onto cassette in 1999, and it remains one of his most entrancing works to date. The name of the label, Recital, feels highly appropriate for the near-spiritual feel of these guitar miniatures. LP, limited t...view item »

Loren Connors
My Brooklyn

Legendary experimental guitarist Loren Connors has two lengthy tracks on this CD, 'Loren Connors at Stone, Jan.07.2012' and 'Loren Connors at Zebulon, Feb.26.2012' - I'm presuming from these titles that these are live recordings. The guitar has a slightly muddy and distant sound that suits Connors's skeletal freeform twanging. The second...view item »

Loren Connors and Chris Forsyth

Contrasts couples together the work of experimental guitar veteran Loren Connors with his more contemporary avant-garde counterpart Chris Forsyth in one of a special series of cassette tapes. Each artist has recorded a special 20-minute work to explore the medium of cassette. Con...view item »

Loren Connors & Jim O'Rourke
Two Nice Catholic Boys

Those Two Nice Catholic Boys are also two highly creative guitarists: Loren Connors and Jim O’Rourke. This album on Family Vineyard provides three live improvisations plucked out from years of performing, and really it is just a pleasure to hear these two total pros responding to each other. Somet...view item »

Loren Connors
The Departing of a Dream

This man is without question a true master of his artform. His minimalist / reductions of the delta blues are some of the most haunting music I think I’ve ever heard. It is incredible to think that back in the 70’s he chucked a load of his LP’s in a dumpster because nobody was buying them. It’s a different story these day...view item »

Loren Connors
Hell's Kitchen Park

As you may or may not know, this fella plays guitar and he's more than slightly handy at it. On top form I'd say he's got about the highest emotion to notes played ratio going, it's pretty incredible what he can wring out of just one sustained tone or string bend. Hell's Kitchen Park is the first of an exciting series of vinyl reissues of his 90...view item »

Darin Gray & Loren Connors
The Lost Mariner

I spent much of last weekend listening to Loren Connors' stunning triple CD set Night Through and now I've got his 1999 collaboration with Darin Gray (ex of Dazzling Killmen and Yona Kit, amongst others) to review. What a coincidence! Weird beard! Twilight Zonez! Etc! The improv generally takes shape with Gray offering sparse thunder and setting th...view item »

Sing The Children Over/ Sand In My Shoe

Well in this world of (come on lets face it) complete and utter shit, its nice that someone takes the time to re-issue some lovely old lp's from the early 80's. This Kath Bloom and Loren Connors re-issue will no doubt appeal to those craving after pastoral folk music in the manner of Shirley Collins, Vashti Bunyan etc. Connors delta bottleneck...view item »
