Released: 18th Sep 2015


a sublime suite of nimble, filigreed compositions by two singular stylists - the record thrives on a gentle empathy & generosity of spirit, sitting sneakily protean original compositions alongside gorgeous arrangements of songs by Duke Ellington & The Smiths.

this is The 2nd album of astonishing duets by guitarists James Elkington (who's toured &/or recorded with Jeff Tweedy, Richard Thompson & Steve Gunn, among others) & Nathan Salsburg (an accomplished soloist deemed by NPR "one of those names we'll all associate with American folk guitar") "Their melody-first sensibilities are perfectly suited to each other. 'Ambsace' features playfully complex guitar work that sounds as if it was tossed off in an afternoon of whiskey & laughs. Their cover of The Smiths’ “Reel Around the Fountain” makes it seem like it was always a front-porch jam" - NPR Music.
