Those who know of James Blackshaw’s work, a bona fide twelve string guitar juggler and magician of the contemplative avant-folk similar to Takoma, will be surprised to learn that he has decided to take the electric guitar as the basis for eight of the tracks (actually, it is just one piece of work divided into eight movements) which will be included on his new album, “All Is Falling”. Charlotte Glasson (violin and flute), Fran Bury (glockenspiel, piano and vocals) plus Daniel Madav (cello) accompany Blackshaw on a record it is said to be influenced by the work of the no wavers Glenn Branca and Rhys Chatham, exponents of the guitar use as prime material of orchestral composition. The record will released around 24th August via Young God.
