Album Review

Joynes, C – “Congo” – [Bo’weavil Recordings]

Laethaka   7/16/2012   12-inch, A Library

Lonely middays of hot dirt, iced drinks, and sunbleached grasses. Insect-rich forests with the worn graves of pioneers. Patient work on something you love on a windy afternoon. All tracks instrumental and (almost all) pleasant; widely varying sounds and speeds- bounce the needle around to find what you like. I liked Side A a little more. B gets kinda menacing in a distant mindless way. C Joynes is an erudite guy from Cambridge with kickass thumbs who’s channeling traditional styles from India to W Africa to England. Memory-laden mixes encouraged.
