Album Review
Chauncy Sunderland
Reviewed 2007-04-10 
Acoustic guitar. Virtuosic, raga/folk/experimental. Lots of different moods. Some "difficult", some outright pleasant, some droney. Great stuff. Compare with Alvarius B. Modern day hippies from the mountains...at least that's what I imagine. FCC clean. Pick any track.

1-4:20) Starts simple and clean. Lilting.
2-2:26) Plucky, stuttery, worldish, but not clear from where.
3-5:06) Zither. Fast romp with a drone underneath.
4-5:04) Slow. Wandering. Difficult.
5-2:22) Skitterish diminished chords.
6-4:30) Deeply resonant low notes. Shifty, drony, and vaguely exotic.
7-1:23) Fast, skitterish.
8-4:11) Rambling folk-blues tinged.
9-5:10) Skittery, fast, stuttering over a drone. Virtuosic.
10-2:40) Mid/slow. Difficult chords accompanying a strange melody.
11-5:53) Slow, lyric, sad clusters. Becomes peaceful and hypnotic.
12-3:54) Experimental busy strumming. Occasionally make out Reinhardt chords.
13-2:08) Dark, unconventional zither playing.
14-4:13) Fast, busy, full. Jazz and blues chords. Abstractly a blues rocker, playing bass and guitar melody at the same time.
15-4:28) Sparse death folk.
16-2:36) Twirling, nice picking. Folky. Nice harmonies.
17-3:59) Fast foward a country song on crack.
18-2:23) Exotic/indian raga almost.
19-8:42) Long and raga. Beautiful playing.
