The Radiant Mirror

Flower-Corsano Duo

The Radiant Mirror

Textile Records (2007)

I bought this a while back and things being as they are, it sat on my right speaker for a long fucking time. Why? None of your fucking business thats why.

But, water under the bridge, here it is tonight, blaring through that same right speaker, appropriately living up to it's description as psyche/drone/free-jazz. A beautiful change of pace for our favorite free drummer Chris Corsano. Michael Flower uses what he calls a 'Japan Banjo' described as a "giant unwieldy instrument fed through effects pedals and an amplifier played with fingers and bows" to deliver his sound. (Look here for the quote, and some MP3's.)
Safe travels, kids.
