Album Review

Milton, Antony – “End of This Short Road, The” – [Deserted Village]

lombard   11/10/2009   A Library, CD

On this release from 2006, “The End of this Short Road,” New Zealand artist Antony Milton produces some lovely sounds that range from mesmerizing psych-tinged instrumental guitar workouts (calling to mind Felt for me) to spare songs with pop moments (and lyrics). There are hectic passages, some interplay with lovely strings, and pieces that sound like the desert of the American west, with twangier influences.

Recorded in 2000, Antony Milton describes this release as representing “simple melodic folk songiness” compared with some of the harsher sounds intended for his PseudoArcana label. I just find it beautiful.
