"The power is out. The power is back. This tape juxtaposes two expert guitarists against each other on the natural A/B boundaries of the cassette medium. Iowas own Evan Miller creates long drifting ragas (or as he like to call them, spells) of acoustic guitar work akin to contemporaries such as Fahey and Rose, but strays from their "minstrel in the country" vibe and going more towards "a fisherman on the wharf" style. Even though there are no words, the emotion and story of his songs are obvious. "Specter" was recorded during a storm adding an ominous atmospheric quality to the meandering spell. On the flip side, Gown creates sky high electric guitar drones similar to his work in Bark Haze, but his presence in the solo setting adds a particularly nice clarity to his work; much less of an overload leaving more time to really soak into the jam. "Pigeon Church" is one of his first recordings since leaving his internship at Ecstatic Peace and moving up to rural Maccan, Nova Scotia. In a numbered edition of 100 tapes in 3 color silkscreened sleeves with tape labels and an insert." - Arbor.
