IGNATZ, MEG BAIRD, THE OSPREYS
Appalachian old-timey folk ala John Fahey re-imagined as outer space blues by Brussels-based solo artist Bram Devens.
"Alien musical transmissions intercepted using an old victrola and played back by some crazy old man, sitting on his porch, armed with just an acoustic guitar, a pile of busted old wax cylinders, and a huge bank of broken and rusty effects pedals... So goddamn great!" (Aquarius Records)
"...his impassioned mantras of faith and devotion from behind the crackled veil of a prewar blues 78. But as Ignatz II again demonstrates, Devens has proven regularly able to re-interpret these borrowed texts in his own singular fashion, his handmade bricks again gloriously shaped, baked, and thrown." (Pitchforkmedia)
'Voice, guitar, songs. Hearts break, folks die, crops wither...'
'...exploratory music project operated by michael w. hall and tom bubul.'
