Extended experimental “raga” rock project by the blues guitarist Jack Rose

 

Jack Rose is a talented American blues rock guitarist which in parallel of his solo albums has released several items for an experimental, minimalist eastern tinged raga inspired project named Pelt. In this production, the acoustic, folk side of his musical background is orientated to unconventional, highly mystical experiences released with the help of traditional instruments as acoustic guitar, bowed strings, cello, bowed metal and addition of amplified sounds. In this adventure, Jack Rose is accompanied by three others musicians whose Mike Gangloss, Pat Best and Skipp James Connell. The quartet explores the universe of “drones” music, the meditative density of eastern classical music and post rock. They provide a rather luminous, static and cinematic extended exploration throw infinite time. Pelt has published its first “classic”double album in 1995, called Brown Cyclopedia. After that they have recorded the free form Burning/Filament/Rockets in 1996, then Max Meadows, recognised for its great sense of diversity (a mix of Eastern raga, psychedelic rock, minimalism and “world”)… Empty Bell Ringing In The Sky marks is their most psychedelic effort, featuring freak out epic tunes. Ayahuasca ( 2001) is dedicated to the acoustic guitarist John Fahey.

A completely hypnotic musical trip and a must have for fans of Faust, Ravi Shankar, John Fahey, Third Ear Band.

 

I think about a possible addition for the archives...
