First, David – “Same Animal, Different Cages: Etudes For Acoustic Guitar” – [Fabrica Records]

Cousin Mary   10/27/2016   12-inch, A Library

Solo guitar from David First known for his work with jazz pianist Cecil Taylor and the psych punk band Notekillers. Non-melodic, minimal, repetitious drones. Nothing fancy or virtuoso. Are they called etudes because they are a study for the bit that is being repeated? Reminiscent of Bill Orcutt in that it starts by sounding weird but quickly becomes endearing.
