Andrew Bowsher from the UK is another steel string wizard with a more experimental approach. In Porthcawl Primitive he mixes field recordings into his tunes to create a geographic reference point (or just to let you trippin' a bit harder) and tape hiss is a constant on this recording. This fits well with his love for old country blues recordings which are lo-fi artifacts from gone times too. It rumbles and rattles all the way through - so be prepared for some aural confusion. I like that a lot.

There are a bunch of records on his bandcamp. I've chosen this one, because it's maybe his strongest, at least it looks like a complete package and I like the 70ies, Avant-Folk kind of looking cover (does that make sense?)

Rags'n'Ragas, Psych Folk-Fingerpicking-Country-Blues lover should give it a listen.
Like I said, there is a lot to discover.
