Guitarist Steve Malley has been wowing people for years in bands like Crane, Kodiak and The Unit Ama, but on this album, as The Horse Loom, he’s going it alone with just an acoustic guitar for company, with a mixture of dazzling instrumentals and more controlled and traditional-sounding vocal-led numbers. When he sings he creates dusky folk invocations that fall somewhere between Adrian Crowley and Lungfish, with ‘Fisher Boy’ even reminding me a little of Songs: Ohia.

It’s the instrumental numbers which are impressing me the most on first listen though, with neat little flourishes repeated as he meditates on hypnotic slow-flowing fingerpicked grooves at times, while at others there’s a splay-fingered skin-of-the-teeth crunch with sparse attack-heavy melodic shapes dipping toes into the amorphous aether of the likes of Drainolith without getting swept irretrievably into abstract sound. Closer ‘Spoken Like A True Man’ is all peaceful twinkles and subtle passing melodies for a nimble, warm, almost spiritual closer. Truly excellent work.
