Two guitars meet without touching

Reviewed the new Daniell/McCombs collaboration for Blurt a week or two ago and was unable to resist the temptation to go all abtract and low-rent poetic. I closed…
Guitars do not always sound like guitars here, often shedding their physical six-stringed form to take on the semblance of pure disembodied tone. Yet sometimes, just to remind you, a flamenco run of notes interjects, a pedal steel moans, a bit of electric buzz jars, and mystery turns deeper for its inclusion of the everyday.

The rest

There are some previews, but no full-length mp3s, at Thrill Jockey
