Bless whatever cosmic winds brought together this split between NYC guitarist and composer Ezra Feinberg and multi-instrumentalist John Kolodij. Traveling deep blue highways of the mind, their split LP opens up the stunning vistas that link these two artists in sound and texture. Their compositions offer an immersive headphone record that pairs rich guitar work – thick with droning overtones or riding heavy with in-the-red distortion – with bucolic woodwinds, brass, piano, strings and electronic processing. An album that finds both artists at peak form.
