damien olsen

Inspired by spaghetti westerns says the blurb, I must say the promise had our ears a pricked though on closer inspection we’d be more inclined to suggest that Damien Olsen’s newly released 6 track ‘desert guitar’ set has more of a whiff of something informed and crafted after a little research reading and listening in the general direction of Harry Smith’s anthology of american folk music, for here amid the arid dry sun scorched desolation there’s a finger picking intimacy aglow in in heat glazed mirages caressed in the blissful sand bleached delta blues serenity that once opined between the grooves of platters by the sadly departed John Fahey and Jack Rose and whose spirit these days is carried forth by such alchemists as David A Jaycock. http://www.damienolsen.bandcamp.com/album/desert-guitar
