|On the heels of the Deep Water reissue of Airs of Sun and Stone, we're honored to continue our association with the United Bible Studies family via this all-new double-CD from UBS singer David Colohan in his Agitated Radio Pilot solo guise. The previous ARP release, World Winding Down (on Deadslackstring), leaned more toward Dave's songwriterly side; by contrast, the music of The Rural Arcane follows its title thematically into melancholy fog-shrouded dusks and dawns, tapping into the stillness at the heart of nature's mystery via lush and expansive drones, chants, songs, and invocations. Two CDs, thirteen tracks, ninety-one minutes, every one of them gorgeous and timeless.|
|Anyone who read our Deep Water interview with Norman, OK's Anvil Salute knows what big fans we are of the group. And lucky for us, they've returned to the Acres to grace us with their ironically titled fourth full-length disc, a full hour of gloriously unwinding instrumental great plains folk rock. Both their most focused and most varied work to date, it takes in everything from angular modal epics to sweetly melodic miniatures to ethnic-infused psychedelic drones, all seemingly rendered live via lovely you-are-there room-fi acoustics. Heed that rooster's crow. . . .|
|After a year in (slow-motion) preparation, Evening Fires are pleased to unveil their first full-length CD. Though the group includes members of the Clear Spots and Peacefeather , beyond a shared attitude of musical exploration you'd be hard-pressed to find many sonic connections here. "Side A" features a trippy flowing suite sculpted out of acoustic guitars, percussion, organ, synths, flute, and voice; while "Side B" is built around a lengthy invocation that starts from a mountaintop cathedral launch site to soar out over the forested valleys below. Call it folk-infused Northeastern psychedelia if labels are necessary, though the spirit is more important than any categories. . . . Eight tracks, 42 minutes.|
|We're huge fans of the Irish collective known as United Bible Studies , so it's a great pleasure to be able to bring back one of the best of their earlier limited releases. Originally out on the group's own Deserted Village label in 2005 and OOP since around then, Airs of Sun and Stone documents a complete live set recorded at a Limerick arts festival in an old church on a Sunday morning. One extended improvisational piece (nearly 40 minutes) by a special quartet version of the group (plus dance troupe), featuring harp, guitars, piano, and percussion, it's a perfect avant-folk morning raga. This edition features a complete sonic remaster and lovely new cover art.
