TheSlowMusicMovement A remarkable LP from one man quartet Seabuckthorn for Fluid-Audio. Preparing his guitars in unusual ways, mostly playing with a bow & with judicious use of electronic processing, he has created a moving modern classical abstraction, that is deeply, yet ambiguously, emotional & that requires careful, repeated listening.
Lost Tribe Sound
Lost Tribe Sound thumbnail
Lost Tribe Sound Cartwright really spills some blood with Other Other. With little more than a bow and guitar, twisted hymns of heartache, triumph and comfort pour forth. It's music that balances precariously on a razor's edge, become lopsided and you'll surely stumble into the gray. It's a continuously evolving sort of music, that never quite sounds the same with each listen. Emotionally speaking, this may be Cartwright's most confident use of these techniques yet. Get this!

Release notes by Fluid-Audio :

Over the space of this album, a slow and patient unfolding occurs. Strings are able to breathe, finding the space they need to move, although their movements are lurching, clunky, and convulsive. Seabuckthorn illuminates the distance – a family, a time spent together, and a beautiful summer. It has the feel of old European adventures and trips to glorious cities, markets, churchyards, and yawning fields, with a population yet to face the music of climate change or even a World War.

Years erode the features, and a scattering of distortion eats away at the music. The year in question has faded away, and time has gone way beyond evening or dusk, but Seabuckthorn brings it back and makes it relevant once again. The music is late and so is the hour, but even as the light dims, a beautiful, rusty afterglow is left behind, a dull gleam coming from a King’s crown.
