Artist: GALBRAITH, ALASTAIR
Title: Mirrorwork
Format: LP
Label: Emperor Jones
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"On Alastairs third long player, sounds -- guitar, violin, even some bagpipes -- expand and contract, folding into one another one moment and breaking away the next. His soothing, almost meditational voice is the calm which sets atop the musics pulsing shiver - you get the feeling that hes singing in the same room with you. This is very intimate and personal music, full of wondrous melodies, cyclical experimentation and suspended notes." - Emperor Jones. Small stash of this mid-90s release.

Title: Cry
Format: LP
Label: MIE
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"Recorded in a shed at Taieri Mouth between 1998 and 2000, Mies vinyl reissue of ALASTAIR GALBRAITHs Cry CD (Emperor Jones 2000) looks directly into the furthest recesses of the mind of one New Zealands most admired yet habitually overlooked underground musicians. Guitar, violin, organ, and vulnerable murmurs frequently reverse and invert through four-track manipulations, giving Cry a haunting, unsettling and incredibly complex mindscape where tenebrous drones, hushed, lilted words, and deep warmth pull you in further and further." -MIE.

"not since 2000s CRY has alastair galbraith delivered an album of song-based material. here are 20 new tracks, all hiss and bones raw hurt and high wonder.  familiar backwards  folk  "here not there",  barely-there ballad-fragments  "one direction","tumbling" ,"homesick"  "Short Dream For Fire Organ" where alastairs home-made gas-powered instrument booms  away in a tunnel (pictured on the  back cover) while disembodied  whisperers come and go with you trapped down there under a bad drug "cut"  a very short track of what sounds like 3 frogs 2 locusts and  several clockwork motors recorded in a pigskin bladder. "Head Down" a  hypnotic lullaby  with  swelling rolls of delayed guitar and tidal washes of vocals. "Cloth Master" which punches you repeatedly,while screaming in your face favourites would have to include the rock-bottom alt-country resignation  of "something happened" and the mirror-imaged "your lilt"  which ends with you waltzing with a skating cello round heaven." - Nextbestway.

Title: Mass
Format: LP
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"That ALASTAIR GALBRAITH should return to the Siltbreeze fold (responsible for his debut LP, Morse, in 1993) for his latest release seems practically tailor-made. But while Morse followed traditional avenues of rugged folk narrative tinged with psychedelic foxing, Mass is an unchartered, one-way trip through a world of ritual. Consisting of 22 tracks, this new album runs the gamut from mysterious beauty to just plain mysterious. Broken guitars, percussive loops, backwards tracking, a (homemade) glass harmonium, lullabies, bagpipe thievery and the odd bit of fighting talk are just some of the many bricks laid here, with Galbraith himself as the mortar and AMIEL BALESTER, MICHAEL KOHLER and DAVID KILGOUR providing assistance here and there. Mass is an expansive whopper prepared to go anywhere and do anything to get there. Includes free digital download coupon." -Siltbreeze
