new lessons learned
Mike Tamburo is surrounded by ghosts. His music is the work of one man and it very much has the feel of sitting on the porch swing, midsummer, and listening to your new amazing friend play some finger-picked guitar tunes you ought to know. This part could very well be likened to Fahey or Jack Rose or 6 Organs of Admittance. Then every so often, from out of nowhere enter the strange sounds of electronics, singing bowls, organs and other insectian accompaniment. Perfectly arranged and gliding in and out, disappearing before you can say "Hey this ain't no folk rekkid!"
Tamburo has spent years honing his guitar chops, long ago with Meisha and most recently with the divine Arco Flute Foundation, who I had a pleasure of seeing a number of times before their demise. Arco channeled the stratospheres of the GYBE world in their own wonderful way and now have what is sure to be a great release, their appropriately named Everything After Everything After the Bomb is Sci-Fi which collects all of their material that was recorded after their final album Everything After the Bomb is Sci-Fi.
Grab Mike's new album from Music Fellowship and out on tour forever, but mostly with Louisville's (and perhaps the worlds) premiere experimental steel guitar player, Keenan Lawler.
