Andrew Tuttle: Slowcation tape

Andrew Tuttle: Slowcation tape

Formerly known as Anonymeye, Andrew Tuttle has been creating a unique brand of electro-acoustic folk music for years, with scads of albums and EPs to his name. This tape continues experimental avant-(Australian-)Americana, blending banjos and Fahey-style acoustic guitar with analog synths and drifting tape drone. MC Schmidt of Matmos plays acoustic guitar on “Post Meridiem Construction”, and the connection makes perfect sense, given some of their folk/acoustic/Americana experiments. This tape has such a warm, natural blend of earthy acoustic instruments and fluttering, exciting electronics. He’s just so good at this it’s astonishing. The second half of the tape focuses less on acoustic instruments, and the final track is a shimmering Laurie Spiegel-scape. Excellent tape.
