I love the instrument list for this latest release from local artist Mike Gamble: electric guitar/EFX/children’s drum kit. Only three things but he uses them all so very well. Gamble layers some shimmering guitar melodies over odd squelching little noises and the clatter of percussion that sounds like its going to fall apart at any second. And somehow it makes sense that he recorded it while snowed in at a cabin in a town near the Marys River. I’d love to mirror the experience by listening to these challenging and stirring compositions while snowbound in the woods to see what effect that might have on me.
