bill orcutt

Quite something else this and something that’s sure to prick the ear of both admirers of the Corrupting Sea and Scott William Urquhart. This is a cut lifted from Bill Orcutt’s imminent self titled full length through the Palilalia imprint, this being ‘the world without me’ – an utterly beautiful track, finitely crafted and honed to cut deep and deliberate, just love its free spirited aura, flexed in nods to John Fahey and Jack Rose yet bespoke with elements of Loren Connors, Roy Montgomery and a passing reference to the late 80’s New Zealand scene. Perhaps what charms is the way it manages to convey a sense of letting you into a secret inner space as though a serene union between self, the surrounding elements and nature itself, its poetic sonic conversation impeccably corralled in a pristinely turned sparsely toned poise that fills and colours the spaces to create a richly vivid portrait of a reflective moment frozen in time.
