Song Songs Song, christangelfox, 15=15
Stylistically he stopped listening in 1955. Especially fond of pre-bop guitar virtuosos. He really really really hates my music.
Loads his copy with so many cringe-inducing archaic hipster clichés that it is impossible to take his analysis seriously. 1.5 upturned noses.
Appears to be a guitarist, but thats all I know. Evaluation pending.
1.5 upturned noses.
All three players on guitarist Scott Fields Christangelfox are credited as percussionists, clinking and tinkling various instruments that arent listed in the notes but are probably akin to anything shiny on the shelves at any Williams-Sonoma. As the clattering, nonenchanting and ceaseless din of the rhythmless percussion hangs in the background, Fields noodles in minor modes on a nylon-string guitar, Guillermo Gregorio drones eerily or chirps curtly on clarinet and the usually excellent cellist Matt Turner bows wilted lines in accompaniment, sounding utterly uninspired. Its an hour-long stab at creating a stark, abstract landscape that fails because the musicians hardly sound engaged and rely too heavily on the tiresome free-jazz gambit of answering one non-sequitur squawk with another.
