Buck Curran, Immortal Light
Buck I take it is playing acoustic & electric guitar and singing, along with some harmonium, banjo and flute. Shanti Deschaine sings and plays harmonium a bit.
Together they get a spacy sound via studio magic. The vocals are right where they should be. And the lyrics take you off on a trip.
It is music that transcends nostalgia by making advances in the genre, by the beauty of the tunes. It feels like today more than a wishful trip to yesterday.
The arrangements are always musical and give it all a variety of sonic landscapes.
It's an album I must say I increasingly welcome into my ear space.
Utterly recommended for those who want to forge ahead in the space music zone.
