Ellis, Brian & Brian Grainger - At DuskVendor: El Paraiso Records
NEW VINYL LP ON EL PARAISO RECORDS 2015
180 GRAM VINYL
Rarely has the feeling of late summer twilight been captured as well on record as on this collaborative effort by Southern California native Brian Ellis and South Carolina ambient producer Brian Grainger. This is the sound of two offbeat musicians zoning out with acoustic guitars, hand drums, flutes and an array of vintage synthesizers and tape machines, brewing a mysterious, mellow kind of acid folk, like it’s never quite been brewed before. Though psychedelic in nature this isn’t yet another materialization of a 1970s commune-folk vision - rather it feels like a work of ghostly solitude, strangely absent from human activity, slowly, aimlessly moving forward like a lonely breeze travelling down the coastline as the day fades away.
