01. Canticle of Ignat
02. All Glass
Recorded by Scott Slimm at the Big Jar book store in Philadelphia
Mastered by James Plotkin
One track played on modified acoustic guitar and one track played on modified Banjo. For those unfamiliar with Saint Paul’s Mr. Metzger his works offer and amazing mix of Indian ragas crossed with a junk yard band feel, highly evolved and incredible unique. Recorded by myself in 2007 at BigJar in Philly a fantastic piece of documentation offered in unaltered form. (aRCHIVE)
A virtuoso on a myriad of stringed instruments, Minneapolis-based experimental/progressive folk artist Paul Metzger focuses much of his creative energy on his 21-string modified banjo. A student of both Eastern and Western traditional music, Metzger first appeared on a split album that featured guitarist Ben Chasny (Six Organs of Admittance) and lauded improv drummer Chris Corsano on one side and Metzger’s unique improvisational guitar work on the other. He released the full-length Three Improvisations on Modified Banjo for Chairkickers Music in 2005, followed by Deliverance for the Locust label in 2007. (James Christopher Monger, All Music Guide)
FR On reste ouvert pendant les vacances (même si ce blog ne va pas monopoliser l’essentiel de mon temps libre non plus). Et puisque c’est l’heure des bilans de fin d’année, vous aurez droit à une liste ici aussi (début janvier). Il faudra quand même m’expliquer pourquoi Zola Jesus apparait sur toutes les listes que je croise ces jours-ci…
ENG Holidays are not an excuse: this blog is not closed (but simply because you have more free time, don’t expect me to post a lot more). And everybody’s making lists these days, so yes there will be a list here too (in january). But why is Zola Jesus on almost every top-list I see?
