A Broke Moon Rises

Drag City


Released: 17th Aug 2018



Released: 17th Aug 2018


The slint man expands his guitar mastery over five extended pieces for the acoustic guitar that amount to a rusty glide of kinda worn-down contemporary roots, exquisitely realised.

Surprisingly perhaps there’s nothing electric about ‘A Broke Moon Rises’, the five songs a workout right in the sweet spot between technique and emotion.  Layers of guitars curl and unfurl, falling away from the centre with feathery softness. Slide figures cut through the progressions, and arpeggiations flicker with light, leading into a change that’ll break on your ear like a small revelation. A meditative and hypnotic listening experience, ffo john fahey, jim ghedi, and eric Bachmann. "instrumental healing...a dip in the sea of tranquility" 8/10 - uncut
