• tashi dorji & tyler damon Both Will Escape (LP, £16.95)

    label: Family Vineyard

    Both Will Escape is the debut full length shared by electric guitarist Tashi Dorji and percussionist Tyler Damon. In the long tradition of string/drum duets - from Bailey & Bennink to Haino & Yoshida - these two cleave out their own unmapped continent of sound. In four pieces they connect lashes of ecstatic intensity and outer reaches of texture and timbre. At times Dorjiís brutal electric torrents meld into Damonís metal and tonal abstractions. These two developed in parallel for years before forging an ongoing duo in 2015. Dorji has released a string of startling acoustic albums thatíve rescrambled six-string notions of jazz/improv/ Flamenco. Damonís rethink of overtone and rhythm is enraptured as itís stupefying in solo exhibitions or with Darin Gray, Mars Williams and Thee Open Sex. Both Will Escape was recorded recorded by Patrick Kukucka at the Hi Z lo z Studio in Asheville, NC and mixed by John Dawson at Magnetic South. Tashi Dorjiís guitar playing has been widely heralded in wake of releases on Ben Chasnyís Hermit Hut, Feeding Tube and MIE. One time pressing of 500 LPs with download code. Track Listing A1.
