Andrew Weathers: I Am Happy When I Am Moving tape (Constellation Tatsu, 2015)December 25, 2015 at 6:03 pm | Posted in Reviews | Leave a comment
Like Andrew Tuttle, this Andrew plays instruments like guitars (acoustic and electric) and banjos, but also droning synths and electronic processing, making some sort of spacey 21st century instrumental folk. He gives equal precedence to melodies and ambience, but the melodies are upfront enough that it might not deter people who aren’t into space music. For the most part, anyway: “We Can Only Speak to the Future” only has shreds of acoustic guitar flickering, the rest of it is nature sounds and high, rolling drones. “Hi Jolly at Quartzsite” also has some blippy synths and more skygazing guitars rather than earthy folk melodies. For all the Real Life Rock & Rollers out there.
