Marcia Bassett & Samara Lubelski are some of the brightest stars in the contemporary underground. Maybe they are not the most mentioned names but their reach & light affect many corners of the musical universe. I'm not even sure where to start in the long list of names that these women have worked with. But more importantly to this discussion is that they have been frequent collaborators for years & have only now come together for a proper duo release titled Sunday Evening, Sunday Afternoon.
This excerpt from the full-length album essentially highlight what the two do best manipulate bits of droning white noise into moving compositions of beauty. Neither attempt to take center stage & really stick their thumbs out. That doesn't seem to be the point here. It is the subtle elapsing layers of ambient noise that Bassett & Lubelski are skillfully coaxing out of their guitar & violin. A sublime pairing to say the least.
Marcia Bassett & Samara Lubelski's Sunday Night, Sunday Afternoon is available now via Kye.
