Whole & Cloven

paradise of bachelors


Released: 2nd Sep 2016


140g lp + download

Released: 2nd Sep 2016


bowles may stay close to Appalachian string music for the most part but within he manages to traverse the avant garde and american primitive effortlessly.

he’s mostly known for his work alongside black twig pickers, steve gunn and, alongside mentor Michael chapman, they inform this surprisingly diverse album. everyone from William tyler to levon helm fans will find something in here – an astonishingly well put together album full of surprises. “bowles applies his clawhammer style to reverberating experiments, ragas and an 11 minute meditation on loss. lovely” – 4/5 mojo
