Album Review

Pedigo, Hayden – “Five Steps” – [Debacle Records]

humana   1/4/2015   12-inch, A Library


What is it like to be only 20 and able to create such beautiful music as this? Pedigo models his American Primitive style of guitar picking after its originator, John Fahey, and Side A is full of lovely melodies that flow gently like a river. Don’t let his age fool you into thinking he isn’t wise, though, because Pedigo does a complete 180 on Side B by changing up the mood. Ambient songs that emanate from the world of dream bordering on sinister nightmare provide a delicious contrast and allow some guest appearances from the likes of Kawabata Makoto, Fred Frith, and Robert Rich.
