The Red Painting
Released April 1, 2016
1. The Red Painting (4:56)
The Red Painting is the first release of piano music from iconic avant guitarist Loren Connors. This piece combines Loren’s deeply moving palette of melody with a masterful control of pace and drama that ends with a guitar coda twinkling in the darkness. It’s wrenching as his glorious ‘airs’ or the distortion mangled screams of his blues.
One-sided red vinyl 7-inch inside a silkscreened sleeve. Cover photo by Peter Gannushkin and adapted by Connors. Hand numbered edition of 338 copies with download card. Worth the wait.
The Red Painting "is undeniably Connors: drifting through air with frayed beauty, solemn optimism, and unbelievable restraint. Each note seems to spiral up like a sparking ember, burning its way higher and higher before fading out forever." -- Bobby Power, Ad Hoc
