071/100 - "Branches never remember" by Adrian Lane
Adrian Lane has an idiosyncratically unique sound, one that is hauntingly beautiful, utterly intriguing and very much his own. Lane uses stringed instruments in such a way that you, the listener, are left wondering "what is that instrument?"
His latest album - "Branches never remember" - on Preserved Sound is a prime example of his particular brand of expressive folky brilliance: the sounds he presents are beautiful and intriguing, as stated before: they are beguiling in the way that gets under the skin but also atmospheric, cinematic and totally engaging. This is folk-infused, imaginative modern classical music at its very best.
