rafi bookstaber

"slow, sun-dazed feel to this beautiful set of rural rags, with strings set to maximum F/X dislocation, with the kind of underwater delay of a Scorces married to stoned folk stylings ala Pat Kilroy, Skip Spence, Dino Valente et al via Takehisa Kosugi." volcanic tongue

"omnipresent, patient meditations that are tethered to the breath permeate the head and heart with ease. earthly tones echo in the vastness as the sun-stroked body revels in gently flowing streams of loving kindness. for me, the art of Rafi Bookstaber is among the most prominent in contemporary folk/psych music. Still Way is analogous to watching heavenly light pass through a filament. the hues and textures comparable to Rafi's undulating tranquil stringed vibrations that caress the head. over both sides sparse passages slowly unfold before refracting in copious directions, circumscribing the body in benevolent energy. a member of Death Chants, the Wolfpack, Mendocino, and Aswara, Rafi's solo recordings on Azriel and Humito are some of the most trichome-covered in the honest bag healing kit. when one has to temporarily retreat from the moment, these vibrations provide a convalescent setting. Still Way will spin on repeat in the decks of those who enjoy Sandy Bull, Willie Lane and other like-minded travelers." honest bag

por fin...demasiado tiempo esperando esta cinta que tenía casi idealizada. pura belleza pastoril susurrada y suspendida en los mismos acordes de guitarra que Willie Lane. tan sólo dos mini canciones, 'sun stream' y 'stellar sky', pero sobre todo 'sun stream'. notas espectrales muy del universo Child of Microtones...aparecen, flotan, desaparecen. Rafi no decepciona nunca
