Loren Connors - The Red Painting (Family Vineyards, 2016) ***½
By Paul Acquaro
Tom Carter & Loren Connors - untitled (Family Vineyards, 2016) ****
Loren Connors & Clint Heidorn - Light (Family Vineyards, 2016) ****
|The Red Painting|
Compared to untitled, Light from Connors (guitar) and Clint Heidorn (guitar) is indeed just what it title says. Though spacious and open like the former, it is also a brighter album, where the gentle refraction of melody reflects a melancholic hope. The album limited in quantity - 300 12" clear vinyl along with prints of Connors artwork.
Overall, a really nice set of new and thoughtfully packaged music from Connors and Family Vineyards.
