7/10 Clinton Staff review, 27 June 2014

An odd one. It opens with a nineteen minute track which consists of some undulating drones and some rather proggy guitar twiddles.  Its most reminicent of Loren Connors and Expo 70 and the driftings of that  kind of space rock crowd. Nice but not my scene.

Flip it and ‘The Great Receiver’ is a lovely piece of hushed 3AM acoustic melancholy. You can almost hear the candle flickering in the corner of the room. It sounds like some of American Music Club’s early torch-lit sounds on the ‘United Kingdom’ album. Its followed by another mood piece but this time using twangy guitars it has the feel of La Bradford but its liberal use of an e-bow type guitar sound recalls Brian Eno’s ‘Another Green World’. Again it stretches out for a good 14 minutes of your time. Its followed by a brief John Fahey-ish acoustic outro with pretty Spanish classical guitar pickings.

The differing moods on this record begs the question "Will the real Chris Schlarb please stand up"?
