Kelson Durian: Black Shudders Review:
The seven untitled tracks on this cdr feature Brown on guitar/banjo, mostly solo, and beautifully indeed. Percussion and electronics feature occasionally, but the string work is the focus here. The last track strays from that (winning) formula and guitar by synth electronics. While the pieces may lack the epic grandeur of, say, the most memorable Cam Deas tracks, they are more lofi and intimate. None of the tracks even hits the three minute mark. In fact, most are much shorter: intricate sketches, which remind me of older North Sea stuff. This being a great thing in my book, I thoroughly recommend “Black Shudders” to anyone into the more ‘outsider’ aspect of solo guitar. – Jan-Arne Sohns (Foxy Digitalis,7 October, 2009)
