ERIC CHENAUX - Guitar & Voice

Eric's first truly solo record for Constellation alternates between woozily interwoven nylon-string/fuzz/wah songbook balladeering and equally-affecting hardanger-style bowed instrumentals, making for maybe his best set yet.

"In between vocal lines, an acoustic guitar weaves a cussed path, snarling through a wah-wah pedal...An interesting example of a performer getting more experimental and simultaneously more studio-savvy, Chenaux has produced his best work yet." - The Wire

"After five LPs and a decade of working with acts like Sandro Perri, Ryan Driver, Drumheller and Michelle McAdorey, he has made Guitar & Voice, which is just that, just those perfect things, guitar and voicecoaxed & shattered & sublimated & splintered & mirrored & burned to ash...This is unquestionably one of the best albums of 2012." - Said The Gramophone
