Woo. A new Turnquist! I loved this guy’s last album so much that I’d say it was my favourite album of last year. I’ve played it to death. I’ve practically destroyed my vinyl of it! I can’t recommend that album enough if you’re into guitar soli. It’s genius!

‘Like Sunburned Snowflakes’ is the New York-based 12-stringed wonder’s first material since that album so needless to say I am excited about it! I seriously think this dude is one of the best 12-string guitar players around. I’ve never heard anyone make such a full bodied sound before with just a guitar and his fingers.

This five track coloured vinyl EP has a much more plucked sound than the strummyness of ‘Hallway Of Mirrors’. It’s harmonics city with cyclical loops of plucked harmonics sending you in to a whirling tizzy. The rhythms are complicated, melodies complex and together they create a unique tonal sounding record. It’s very different from his previous output but it shows his versatility as a guitarist and musician. It’s taken my head a while to get around this EP but after a few spins it’s making sense to me. It’s a wonderfully warm rich sounding experimental guitar record.
