evan miller Transfigurations On Lap Steel Guitar (LP, £13.95)label: Arbor
Iowa City's Evan Miller is never one to stay in the same rut for too long. His earlier releases were composed of Fahey-esque spells, heavily emotional acoustic guitar work emanating tones of nostalgia and simplicity. On "Transfigurations" a new zone is crafted with lap steel guitar and tape collages creating equally nostalgic music from the other end of the spectrum: delicate, minimal drones. Tones interweave and textures evolve: it is Evan's most personally progressive work, combining past themes and reinterpreting them on another medium: electric lap steel guitar. Mastered by Pete Swanson. In an edition of 450 full colour pro-printed cardboard LP sleeves and printed labels designed by Jeff Witscher (Secret Abuse / Callow God).
