Following a lengthy pause in operations as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, Rusted Tone Recordings returns to releasing physical items. Having appeared the two most recent RTR samplers, Seattle-based guitarist Jeff Brown delivers his latest album, ‘Forgive the Trespass’ (RTR025). The album consists of two long-form pieces of 12 string electric guitar blurred in reverb and a fuzzed-out undercurrent. Post-produced into a half-remembered dream that wanders an empty crumbling cathedral under a setting sun.
The artwork for ‘Forgive the Trespass’ was captured by Chris Walton shortly after relocating to Devon, pairing beautifully with Jeff’s expansive and blurred soundscapes.
Alongside Jeff’s album, yesterday also delivered the release of ‘Apotheosis’ (RTR026), a split tape with sides from zakè & Jordan Christoff (more on this in the next RTR post). Both albums are available as part of a bundle.
