Album Review
Red West
Reviewed 2010-04-27
Noodling on the edge of new age, low key guitar (w/acoustic bass, sax, drums, etc) with a little overdubbing/studio effects here and there. Sounds improvised with structure. No vocals except for track 1.

1. Gentle untreated electric guitar and lady singing “la la la” pleasantly
+2. Jazzy, noodling loose guitar/sax interplay w/subtle backwards sounds
+3.math rock guitar, feedback, drums, sounds jazzy by 2nd half
+4.brief, cool
5.indie acoustic noodling, goes out there
6.easygoing improv jazz guitar goes between echo and clean, clean drumset
7.sax/guitar, on the quiet side, sounds like a couple friends in the parlour
+8.walking bass and early electric guitar sound
+9.experimental bleeps and pitchbent guitar. Repetitive but some cool sounds
+10.More experimental backwards guitar + normal drums, more mellow and musical than previous track
+11.Folky, almost melodic
12. trumpet? High sax? Plays a little melody over very echoey guitar. Sounds European to me but dunno what that means to anyone else…
13.banjo and tabla, nice combo of sounds, but the music goes nowhere. Sounds like an old cassette recording.
+14.gentle noodling guitar and euphonium- had to look at the liner notes to tell me that 2nd instrument- it’s a bass horn. Tune for the ocean
+15.subdued intro, mellow first half, energetic 2nd. Never gets loud. guitar/drumkit duet, good jazz
