Joseba Irazoki’s Guitar Intrumental MP3s

When downloading Joseba Irazoki‘s new EP, Negurdin, from the con-v.org netlabel, if your time and bandwidth is limited, stick with the odd-numbered tracks. Irzaoki is one of the most interesting guitarists today working outside of traditional song form. The vocals on the album, to the extent there are any, appear on the even cuts as mournful, even bereft. The odd numbered tracks (MP3, MP3) tone down the vocals in favor of delicate instrumental drones with complex chordal interplay and tireless attention to texture and atmosphere. The material was recorded in the Basque region of Spain last autumn, and released last month. Get the full set at con-v.org. (Irazoki was the subject of another recent Disquiet Downstream entry, back in April: disquiet.com)
