We’ve got the latest from New Zealand legend Alasdair Galbraith from good ol’ Henry at MIE this week, full of spluttering organic drones from fiddles and guitars and flutes, sleepy guitar twinkles and Galbraith’s deep, sleepy mumble. It’s somnolent and experimental without being too difficult, with soft, eerie loops and backwards weirdness masking but not completely obscuring traces of traditional songwriting.
It’s reminding me a little of the work of fellow antipodean experimental veteran Michael “Gate” Morley and his slow-drifting physicality, but just when I’m thinking I’ve got a grasp on what Galbraith is doing here he surprises me with ‘One Method’, a lovely little groover that comes on like Clinic meets Brian Eno before some Cale-esque fiddle screeching on ‘Koterana’ brings us back to his more awkwardly experimental side with a dusky bit of droning that reminds me a little of Rain Drinkers. Solid, engaging and playful stuff once again from the underground journeyman.
