7/10 Clinton Staff review, 13 December 2013

Grubbsy. The Grubbsmeister. Grubbsmania. Tony Grubba’s. However you want to greet him, it's clear that David Grubbs has followed an interesting and idiosyncratic path since the sad demise of Gastr Del Sol.

This is his first release of solo guitar improvisations. Usually not averse to doing a bit of strumming and a bit of singing, here he performs minimal guitar instrumentals that sound like they form part of the soundtrack to a bleak Japanese silent film. Picking out notes like a man distractedly pulling threads from a worn jumper, Part 1 is a slow moving, slightly discordant piece of semi-improvised guitar playing. Part 2 is the same but on a nylon strung guitar rather than the electric used on Part 1. It sounds like he has all the time in the world. We had better press on, though.
