Shells: Outside tape

Shelley Salant’s newest tape was recorded in her Detroit backyard last September, and it has a breezy feel as if it’s been picked up by the early autumn breeze and it’s just suspended in the sky. It’s a little like the longform pieces of Another Time from a few years ago. Her guitar playing just floats up and cycles, with gentle effects pulling the notes in different directions or prolonging the reveries. It’s quite scruffy and homespun, definitely the type of release that makes sense on a cassette. It’s very easy to just lose track of time listening to this. She already released a record called In a Cloud, but this one evokes that feeling even more.
