Eric Cheneaux - Dull Lights

phpBB [media]


Enjoying this record a whole lot. Recorded by one of the Godspeed You! Black Emperor dudes but it doesn’t sound anything like that. Similar to the Microphones or Will Oldham’s early Palace records, but it’s kind of on it’s own planet.

Efrim Menuck, who is obviously insane, describes it as such:

“guitar, electrified pre-war banjo, and drums, tiny amplifiers, highland balladry, and fields of treble”

Excellent sane/quickie interview! Used to stroll past the studio daily on my way to work...


Haven't heard the records really but have seen him in small rooms a couple three times for sure.

Not a fav exactly but odd and unique stuff for sure. NC.

I love Chenaux. I played a show with him once and have seen him a handful of times. He's a truly great player. My favorite song off of that first record is Worm & Gear, but there's so much more to his music than just that album. I personally love Warm Weather with Ryan Driver, which Radwan Moumneh recorded, and Voice & Guitar. Wonderful, inspiring music.
