Oh man, this Opposum Sun Trail album is hard to descibe.
It’s like a menu of acid laced greek yoghurt, after a main course of spaghetti western with a side of sauerkraut-rock and american goth primitivism.
Death Raga Run-on Sentence is a really cool, short, instrumental album that could be the perfect sountrack to a Jodorowski movie (or maybe there are even more edgy psychedelic western flicks).
Since I don’t have much information about the group, I leave it with those buzz words and encourage y

Very interesting guitar music from Italy again. The setting Matteo Fiorini has chosen to record his debut, is a former church with a beautiful natural reverb. He went there to let his guitar tell stories. Stories about Le grand électrificateur, a monster who wants us to be soulless puppets, about the creole myth of Baron Saturday, trees with eyes and folk rituals like the greasy pole.
Accompanied by only natural sounds like thunder, rain, birds, unidentifiable distant noises and ghostly instrum

Welcome to a new episode of Songs of Wild Nothing. I think I’ve never described the purpose of this show or mix, so this might be a good opportunity to give some insight.
tl;dr
Over the eight or so years, this label and music blog exists I’ve always put together “mix tapes”, or better — ‘mix.zip”s with the music I discovered. At some point, when the blog was starting to focus on solo acoustic guitar music, I came up with the Morning Raga series, which is featuring all the guitar music that is

Digging in the Dust, the reissued demo tapes by Mark Fosson that he sent to Takoma Records in the late 70s, was one of the first records of a rediscovered American Primitive guitarists I’ve ever heard. Sure, there was Robbie Basho, Peter Walker, but the forgotten recordings by Don Bikoff, Max Ochs or Mark Fosson were a bit more intriguing to me. And many more followed over the last years, with a growing interest into american steel string guitar solis.
Solo Guitar is now Fosson’s 5th album, rel

All strings considered. A new mix with most recent and almost forgotten solo acoustic and electric guitar work.
tl;dr
Tim Pilcher & Monica Lord released their debut on the label Dismal Niche a label from Missouri who also released a new Scott Tuma album, recently. Delicate fingerpicking and deep resonant cello tones making a good mix and I heard that combination quite often lately.
Next comes a piece by Ryley Walker, from a single that came out a bit before he really got attention. I would say,

Kevin Henry’s album Last Thoughts is the soundtrack to a documentary and road movie he produced in 2006. In this award-winning documentary, filmmaker Kevin Henry retraces the travels of his grandfather Rob, a former rail-riding hobo who tape-recorded his stories of the Great Depression shortly before his death. Avoiding archival footage and dramatic reconstruction, this poetic film juxtaposes those stories with present-day imagery in an impressionistic tour of the American West—past and pres

Tompkins Square just reissued another gem from the treasure trove of their Imaginational Anthem Vol. 8 compilation, while the next one1 is already in the pipes. On that compilation, record collector Michael Klausman and Brooks Rice shared the most obscure solo acoustic guitar pieces that people released on vinyl by their own around 40 years ago. It’s the era of real peoples music, custom record labels and private press records. Compact cassettes, as cheaper medium, haven’t arrived yet and vinyl

After some silence I worked through my stacks of music to compile a new edition of Songs of Wild Nothing.
tl;dr
Starting off with an exclusive song by Simone Romei aka Desmoines. He recorded a beautiful folk album that should be of interest for everyone who likes a well picked acoustic guitar and bittersweet words. And nobody else than Egle Sommacal helped to produce this album. That sounds like I expect you to know both artists, but I fear you don’t. Unless you are from Italy. I already wrote

It’s summer and yets it’s cold right now. Either it’s a glitch in the weather pattern or it’s the nuclear winter looming ahead.
Let’s hope for the best.
Cold Days is the first album by German/American guitarist P.J. Phillips hailing from the Ruhr area, the former center of Germanys coal production.
In the earliest days of this blog I posted a demo of a self-proclaimed anarchist folk punk duo called Meursault (it’s also on bandcamp). Angry young men shouting from the top of their lungs and shred

In 1965, **Harry Taussig** got invited to spend one hour in a studio to record his self-taught style of guitar music, that was influenced by Elizabeth Cotton, John Cage, and Stockhausen. The result was the self-published album _Fate Is Only Once_. Taussig played for friends and on a radio show, then he got into science and art until 40 years later when he was rediscovered by Josh Rosenthal of Tompkins Square.
**Max Ochs**, cousin of folk singer Phil Ochs went to the University of Maryland where
