Jonas Meersmans - Monnift I
Fresh solo acoustic guitar from Belgium by Jonas Meersmans. He co-founded the instrumental quartet Codasync1 and has written several soundtracks for short movies in the past.
Monnift I is his debut album and it starts with an innocent music box tune and then he dives right into American steel string guitar territories. Coyote has a really nice dark vibe and a drive not unlikely to Daniel Bachman or Jack Rose. It's followed by Minglemind which contrasts a jaunty melody with mathematical sounding fretboard exercises.
While all songs are solo acoustic guitar pieces, Meersmans is accompanied by rain and a violin on the last two track.
Meersmans music is just partly inspired by the blues. European minimal music, jazz, and classical music are notable influences.
