Roy Montgomery - Music from the film Hey Badfinger

Roy Montgomery, of Christchurch, New Zealand brings us 23 brief, shimmering tracks of solo electric guitar. Sounds to me like a 12 string guitar, which gives the sparseness a nice thick sound. These pieces are simple. Like fleeting thoughts.. glimpses of a daydream, beginning strong and often fading out instead of ending.. like a frayed string or a loose end. Lonely little musings, lovely, moody and somehow elated. This music comes from far away, pushing through the haze with a rotating Lesley speaker or a Uni-vibe sort of wobble. Makes your hairs wiggle. Abandoned riffs which belong to no song, and never will. Truly something the sway to. -Surfer Rosa
