Equinox - Digital release

Equinox working from Matthew Shaw: here Matthew uses guitar, moog, vocals, kaoss pad and phonography in a split series of workings recorded during the dawn and evening chorus of the Equinox 2013. More orchestral and guitar-psych focussed than previous volumes, Matthew matches the rising and setting of the sun with arcing beams of extended E-bow guitar and great rainbow tones, assembling a constantly shifting string setting that sounds both ancient and futuristic, melding the elegiac English feel of William Lawes viol work with contemporary devotional music like Popol Vuh and Coil. One of Matthews most complexly plotted and compositionally advanced works, very beautiful, hand-numbered/lettered and in hand-made sleeves. highly recommended.

An added bonus and great honor for me was to help Michael by becoming one of his Bulls, along with another game chap. OK, so maybe I felt a slight twinge of embarrassment initially while putting on this cardboard mask but this was Michael dames, and he neded b…
