Bookmaker Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
‘They Haunted Most Thickly’ is the latest release from Seabuckthorn aka acoustic, ambient guitarist Andy Cartwright. With influences ranging from the trad styles of Robbie Basho and Jack Rose to the modern masters such as Ben Chasny, Zak Riles, and Gustavo Santaolalla, Cartwright uses open tunings and resonant twelve strings to construct powerful cinematic soundscapes.
Andy Cartwright makes good songs with his hands and guitar, making spindly and sporadic music in the tradition of American primitivism but with the occasional use of bowing and textural atmosphere -- he's made nine albums, at this point, so it's good to switch things up. On A House With Too Much Fire he implements banjo, clarinet and synth and had a wood burner in constant use. Should be a good mix of homely and doomy.
The one man band taken to new heights by German musician Thomas Kuratli. Mixing krautrock’s solid form and an electro tinge of solitude. you could draw comparisons tonally to Crackle and some Charles Hayward solo outings. Recorded in an empty parking lot, the feeling of being in an abandoned outpost is very real. Repress on Bookmaker.
Thomas Kuratli returns for his second album as PYRIT. Control explores what it's like to be locked inside a machine drawing from influences like Portishead, David Lynch, and The Haxan Cloak. Watch out Charlie Brooker, there's a new creative stylishly stidying the horrors and wonders of technology.

Odawas are taking you outside of your own self on this one here. Reflections of a Pink Laser are the latest from these californian space cadets. Combining astral synths, lasers, spaced out vocals and acoustic earthly instruments to create a sound which is searching for the past and the future. It's a mixture of electronics, folk, indie-pop and psych-rock. Out on vinyl LP from Bookmaker.
