FOR IMMEDIATE PRE-ORDER – Fritz Pape: From My Guitar at Homes (Somewherecold Records, 2020)
An accidental meditation on life during Covid and the importance of places to have history in, From My Guitar at Homes is comprised of guitar manipulations recorded in two homes: at a home on Kelly’s Island over the past few summers, and at Pape‘s own home over the past few months. A clear dichotomy is presented between long pieces meticulously sculpted by a lake breeze and short, skittish loops manifested as the world crumbles outside. In both scenarios, the music trickles out gently and lovingly from Pape‘s original arm extension, a guitar and a looper.
Created from drastically different comforts of home, From Guitar at Homes is meant to give you joy wherever you are.
Album comes out August 21.
