Barn Owl – Smoke Loom Ceremony – One Sided Cassette


Smoke Loom One

The UK’s Blackest Rainbow just dropped a really nice new one-sided tape of a live set down in L.A. by SF’s very own hermit magicians Barn Owl. The first track instantly reminded me of Bruce Langhorns amazing soundtrack to The Hired Hand, which is a really good thing. The dudes don’t poke around for too long though, with both of these tracks eventually blasting off into their seductive take on long-form 60’s loft minimalism gone pitch black. Good good stuff. You may think you’ve had your fill of the whole raga /acoustic guitar drone thing, I know at times I have, but something about this duo just hits me right. If you act fast you may be able to grab one somewhere..????
