seabuckthorn - distant summer storm (cdr)


ARTIST // seabuckthorn
LABEL // dead pilot (uk)
CAT // dead031cd


Seabuckthorn is the instrumental project of Andy Cartwright, mainly focusing on acoustic guitar ragas and ambient electronics.

"Distant Summer Storm" begins with "Galloping into Thin Air". A fantastic opener, throwing you right into the thick of things with a thumping beat and chaotic guitars. As the album develops further there is a real feeling of deep un-ease and anxiety. The subtle electronics, ehoeing whispers and warm drones melding with the psychedelic acoustic guitars create a real trippy sense of unsettling darkness.

Andy's music was once described as the "meeting point between Bert Jansch and Boards of Canada" and I can totally hear that on this album.
