Loren Connors / Vapour Theories
split (2nd pressing) LP
Carbon Records

Two sides of spirited electric guitar instrumentals, each on diverging paths. A 2011 live set at the London's Cafe OTO finds Loren Connors moving in real-time from his signature pointillism to what becomes an open expanse of chords and scrapes that billow like smoke plumes. On the flip, Bardo Pond spin-off Vapor Theories (Michael and John Gibbons) chase the blues down a dense and occasionally ecstatic bit of ebow mangling. [Includes digital download code.]
