Artist: DREDD FOOLE
Title: Blues Sermon with Congregation
Format: LP
Label: Humito
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"The first vinyl document of the Dredd and MV & EE collab recordings, this is a reissue of two deep sides originally released in 2004, as companion volumes to Kissing the Contemporary Bliss, in extremely limited runs. The sessions behind this record represent a singular apex of high in the catalogs of both Dredd Foole and MV & EE, where the playing and being of each of the three individuals involved coalesces into a singularly cosmic perception and extrapolation of the blues doctors truth, while simultaneously, individual sonorities and specialities drive their own Cadillac. A major work of contemporary psychedelic blues in its own right, a truly rare sighting of Dredd Foole on wax, this LP is also an essential piece of the puzzle for COM enthusiasts; this is a key document of the star-gobbling sound MV & EE were toying with as their private universe back in the early-mid oughts, including such sides as Lunar Blues and Cosmic Dust and the Electrobeam Hermit Thrush. Like those albums, MVs patented spectrasound techniques are on full display, creating a dazzling living environment in which Dredds otherworldly and piercingly free vocals orbit. Classic and singular psychedelic visioning, the sound here has almost has no known parallels I can think of, outside of Buckley/Underwood, or possibly Robbie Basho, but just gone." - Humito.

Artist: LANE, WILLIE
Title: Recliner Ragas
Format: LP
Label: Humito
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"Vinyl edition of Lanes first recordings, originally released in 2006 on Child of Microtones. An unbelievably potent and unique brew, this record is one of the finest specimens of modern day guitar soli. Recliner Ragas is, as the liner notes so aptly put it, the fruits of a winter spent exploring the possibilities of nature/total sound as religion, independent study, low wage exploitative manual labor and general isolation while cultivating giant modal blues ragas in his one room studio flophouse. The vibe here is just dripping with this sense of deeply personal inquiry, a man-guitar-cosmos triad wherein all are one Utilizing intricate, yet simple, environmental refraction to create a tactile sense of space, Willie plays rings around yr skull, completely circumventing rational cortices in favor of direct mainline transmission. The effect on the listener is spellbinding, truly psychedelic in a way few modern records can touch. Indeed, this one can easily be filed alongside any classic higher-minded string sounds, from Fahey or Bull to Popol Vuh or Heldon, without any sense of retread or nostalgia. Effortless runs and flows, this is timeless music, universal in nature. In another time, Willie would be a lauded court musician; in 21st century America, he works in a library, and employs a deft wit to navigate the cruder aspects of earthbound life, while continuing to charm his scrabbly blues muse in recent recordings on his Cord-Art imprint. And while his recent records have seen him drawing out more layered arrangements and varied tones, Recliner Ragas displays a singular vision, the kind of window into a private universe we dig here at Humito." - Humito.
