Robbie Basho
Visions Of The Country

Out of print for 35 years until Gnome Life decided to resurrect it, here’s the late, great Robbie Basho’s 1978 album ‘Visions of the Country’ making a welcome return to vinyl. For those who don’t know, Basho was a master of the folk/raga guitar pick...view item »

Robbie Basho
Art Of The Acoustic Steel String Guitar 6 & 12

Robbie Basho's finger-picking innovations are made explicit on 'Art of the Acoustic Steel String Guitar 6 & 12', a collection of instrumentals and proper songs he put together back in 1979 to put steel string guitars back on the map in America. Through simple vocal work and gorgeous, often almost improvised guitar work, Basho crafted a ...view item »

Bird By Snow
Songbread/ Another Ocean

I've not encountered the organic, nature inspired works of Fletcher Tucker's Bird by Snow but I like the fact that he gave the record two names. 'Songbread/Another Ocean' embraces multi-instrumentation (cellos, pianos, guitars, drums, drones, field recordings, tape collage and manipulation) to create a singular vision of dreamy folk and modern 'f...view item »

Bird By Snow
Industrial Collapse

Now this Bird By Snow 'Industrial Collapse' single is quite out there, on the side marked 'Play Loud' we've got a track that sounds like three compressed into one, starting out like a plaintive Will Oldham-like ballad and somehow ending up in loud, twiddling guitar lines. It's a bit all over the place but it's very good, think Xiu Xiu or early Pere...view item »
