willie lane

"Lane is best known for his work with Matthew Valentine and Erika Elder and the one cd he dropped on Child Of Microtones is a regular late-night bomb at volcanic tongue. Known Quantity expands on the eerie 3am raga guitar sound of that particular side, with a series of solo guitar setting that run across 6 and 12 string acoustic, electric guitar, banjo and dulcimer with a guest appearance from Samara Lubelski on bass. There’s a heady Spectrasound feel to the recordings, a still, urban quality that isn’t a million miles from the Siltbreeze aesthetic but it’s the playing that really raises this above the countless post-Fahey/Rose/Valentine sides set on sinking six string euphorics with polished technique and nada in terms of vision. Lane’s style is weird, non-linear, spider-slow and hypnotic." volcanic tongue
