I just bought this record and really enjoy it! Also, Debacle Records is one of my favorite labels; it’s really neat to see Warren Ellis and Wil Wheaton posting about it! Other records Sam has released that I love: Dull Knife s/t and Bender/Drifter by Total Life.
Author, journalist and guitar god Alan Licht performed at Sam Hillmer’s Practice series a Public Assembly, this month guest curated by Maria Chavez. Alan had his guitar laid on its back on a table, an e-bow resonating a string to create a tone that he fed thru several pedals which he manipulated, creating harmonics and harmonies. He was accompanied by a slowed-down film of surfing which froze surfers, waves and sky in time to Licht’s mesmerizing, droning composition.
